Reviews for Knitter's Life List : To Do, to Know, to Explore, to Make...
I didn't try any of the knitting patterns, so I can't comment on how reliable they are. Some of the patterns did look interesting, though.
The author/editors seem to be trying for a crossover of some kind with this book. Rather than just a knitting pattern book, it also has features highlighting various things--unusual yarns, people who knit, etc. Some of the features were just not interesting to me, particularly the pages that just talked about a specific person who knits. I mean, I'm sure they're great people and everything, but why are they in this book?
Also, this author shouldn't try to be funny. It came off kind of...strange.read more
