"Knitters looking to explore their favorite craft will enjoy Steege's adventurous approach." ""The Knitter's Life List" will entertain and occupy every level of knitter." Need knitting inspiration? This compendium of ideas will whet your yarnivorous appetite. This book strives to be a comprehensive guide to all things fiber for chicks with sticks, and guys, too. Steege, a fiberista for more than 50 years who raises her own sheep, gives a tour of how yarn makes it from a sheep's back to the sweater in the closet. Along the way are fascinating and informative side trips through the history of knitting, knitting techniques, and interviews with major knitting designers and teachers. The pictures and illustrations are both beautiful and informative and will inspire many projects. The novice knitter will find everything she needs to know--and more--about the basics, and the experienced knitter will discover new twists to the hobby. The appendix alone is worth the price of the book as it lists every major fiber festival, knitting guru, yarn manufacturer and pattern source mentioned in the book, complete with web addresses and contact information. This is a book the knitter will return to again and again. One can only pity the poor crocheters who must wait for their version.
