Classic Knitting Reference

This book is a reissue of Barbara Walker's famous knitting stitch reference from the 1970s. It is indispensable for those who want to try their hand at substitutions or knitting design.
Unusual projects
»
This book is funny and lavishly photographed. Projects range from the easy and expected knitted blankets and washclothes to the unusual, like a bathrobe and a curtain. The authors have a popular and frequently updated blog.
Mixed Bag

Some pieces will capture you, some are okay, and some are a bit of a slog. Overall, I did enjoy this collection and look forward to reading the others.
Hoverson is a gem!
»
I have looked at a lot of knitting books and patterns and found myself surprised to enjoy Hoverson's books as much as I do, given their titles, which sound like something that would be appealing to a less serious knitter. Her patterns are clever and well designed and I flagged so many of them that I want to make that I think I will have to go buy my own copy. I also appreciated that she included an appendix on wrapping gifts using leftover yarn, buttons, and other little things you will have around the house.

An engaging and unique story that does not go in any of the directions you might expect it to. Horby is a gifted writer and storyteller!
