"This book is an excellent resource...an idea that every knitter and spinner of handspun yarns has been waiting for!" - "Spin2Knit" "Have you seen those advertisements that say 'this is the only book you'll ever need on this subject'? This new volume by Budd isn't the only knitting book you'll ever need, but one could knit hundreds of different mittens, gloves, socks, sweaters, vests, hats, and scarves from just the patterns found here. Budd is [former] managing editor of the popular magazine "Interweave Knits", and this is the book she wished she had when she worked in a yarn store and customers requested patterns made for their size with yarns available in the shop. The patterns allow the knitter to create garments in any size from toddler to extra-large adult in any weight of yarn, from fingering to bulky. The knitter has only to knit a generous swatch with yarn and needles of her/his choice and plug the resulting gauge information into the charted instructions and schematics provided. Highly recommended for all knitting collections." - "Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc., Library Journal"

About Ann Budd

Ann Budd, managing editor of Interweave Knits, learned to knit in 1968 in Switzerland, when all girls in the public school system were taught needlearts. After returning to the States, she continued to knit as a hobby while working toward a master's degree in geology. In 1989, Ann left geology to pursue her love of fibers and to begin working for Interweave Press-first for Handwoven magazine, then in the book department, and finally for Interweave Knits magazine, which has featured many of her projects and articles. In 2000, Ann was awarded the Master Knitter certificate from The Knitting Guild of America. Ann lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband and three sons, who accept-but do not share!-her passion for knitting.
