The first book I bought on knitting was in 1970 and it was EZ's Knitting Without Tears. It changed how I approach a project or pattern. Her attitude struck my creative energy. She was adventurous about knitting. I have followed her over the years and when this new updated and expanded edition came out I knew I must get it. It is exactly what I expected. Her instructions may seem to some to be vague, but that is the beauty. With her outlines and endless knowledge you plan out your design, and make it yours. Before EZ I would follow a pattern mindlessly, exactly as written. But after reading her first book I began to have the confidence and knowledge to design my own patterns. Knitting Workshop is not full of exact patterns, but guidelines and knowledge that can help a beginner all the way to an expert. I have been knitting now for over 50 years, and I still pick up little tricks and ideas from Elizabeth. So bottom line, if you want to make your knitting an adventure in creativity, get this book!
Happy knitting and a wonderful, fulfilling life to you all,
My only recommendation: I wish it were spiral bound so that it would stay flat so it can be referenced easily while knitting.
