A few words of commentary and some reprints,
This review is from: The Opinionated Knitter (Hardcover)
IMPORTANT: my review is about the actual contents of this book . It consists of a series of reprints (photostats) from E.Zimmerman newsletters. Very poor quality copies. They are interspersed with some editorial commentaries.
What a pity!
As for the knitting/shaping/pattern information which E.Zimmerman includes in her newsletters:
IF you CAN decipher it- is interesting, valid and -probably applicable now, just as it was at the time of writing.
What was the BIGGEST disappointment for me: there were no transcripts. For a book costing so much -this is simply not acceptable- hence 2 stars for non-existent editing.
If the same book is ever re-published, editors: PLEASE-make some effort, and re-type, re-chart and generally tidy up the old newsletters. Include them, by all means, ALONG the properly written and charted designs.
I will be the first to award it full five stars.
