The author writes "Wouldn't it be fun, we thought, to create a 'life list' of things to do, patterns to try, techniques to explore, places to go, movies to see -- and much more -- all related in some way to knitting."
And that's what she did, with this book. Of course, she couldn't include everything in this volume, but my goodness, there is a lot there!
It is organized loosely into 11 chapters:
- The Yarn Life List
- The Know-how Life List
- The Sweaters Life List
- The Socks Life List
- The Scarves & Shawls Life List
- The Hats Life List
- The Gloves & Mittens Life List
- The Bags Life List
- The Kids-Knit Life List
- The Home Dec Life List
- The Fiber-Lover's Life List
There is a detailed appendix, with lots of references to other books and websites. There are no patterns, but there is a list of sources for patterns for the items photographed (I was happy to find that I have some of those patterns in my library).
The many ideas guarantee that you'll not get stuck in a knitting rut!
