Knitter's Almanac: Projects for Each Month of the &hellip by Elizabeth Zimmermann
5.0 out of 5 stars Big fan of Zimmerman, 12 Dec 2012
If you are expecting the usual array of patterns etc. you will be disappointed although there are some lovely items in this book. No, the real benefit of this book depends upon your being a Zimmerman fan i.e. someone who enjoys her conversational style and sense of humour. The designs can be described as somewhat "rustic" and utililitarian for a cold climate but you will be amazed at her mastery of construction of knitted garments. I have her other books and it is like listening to a lovely aunt being supportive, encouraging and witty as you tackle your knitting projects.

I was disappointed with this because "inspired" in the title gave me the impression that some if not all of the patterns would be a little different from the usual patterns one finds on Ravelry or in other books on cabled sweaters/ganseys. However, the instructions were nice and clear. It depends how many knitting pattern books one has - if you do not own a book of basic cable patterns, this would be a good one to go for.

There are some lovely designs in this book and many of the charts can be adapted for use in other patterns
