"All over the world where people have time to knit, literally tons of wool garments have been produced by hand, by home knitting machines, and industry....what happens to all this wool fiber? In Scandinavian countries, frugality dictates that it be recycled. The author...was the operator of the last wool garment recycling center, a shoddy factory. Suffice it to say that when a knitter gets 16 tons of discarded wool garments that have accumulated since the turn of the last century, she sees the heap of history therein. So she has sorted out examples that she uses to illustrate `everyday knitting'.... When she embellishes the illustrations with archeology and printed commercial patterns, things get very interesting...."
