'Purists who demand that patterns fit exactly within the boundaries should be marooned.' Nevertheless the finished articles are exquisite using some simple and many intricate designs. Beautifully photographed, it is worth the price if you are a knitter, or borrowing just to look at if not a knitter - you may be tempted to take up the needles again.</p>»

Om forfatteren

Meg Swansen learned to knit at her mother's knee - a knee that happened to belong to British-born designer Elizabeth Zimmermann, a leading figure in handknitting since the mid-1950s. Now, as the owner of Schoolhouse Press, Meg wears many (knitted) hats: she publishes knitting books, runs a mail order business, writes the semi-annual Wool Gathering, has produced nearly 20 instructional videos, and presided over Knitting Camp. Meg lives in an old school house in Wisconsin.
