In the world of many, many knitting "how-to" books, this is the best I have ever seen! Even though I have a policy of never buying another knitting book, I have ordered this one through Amazon. The author is a knitter with a great deal of experience. She is also a good writer. She has answered so many of the little detail questions that I have never been able to find addressed in the past. I know that I will refer to this book over and over again. Her illustrations are clear. I love that the book starts out with a bit of information that I have never encountered before: "You Can Always Tell What's Wrong with the Garment by the Way the Model is Posed" I was sold the moment I looked at the Table of Contents. I'm definitely a fan!
