A fun read that opened up my knitting world to the magic of fair isle knitting, which I had been too intimmidated to even try. Now, I'm excited to get into it -- my first tries have actually worked and been pure fun!! Best of all, the author introduced me to the Michealangello of modern fair isle design: Alice Starmore! My new hero. Hoorah for fair isle!

Can knitting generate philosophical discussions? Adrienne Martini certainly thinks so. Sweater Quest: My Year of Knitting Dangerously, is a quirky romp through her adventures of knitting a Mary Tudor sweater designed by the reclusive knitter Alice Starmore. This project is Martini’s holy grail and she interviews some of the best known knitters in the United States and Canada to discuss the deeper questions of knitting, such as who owns a piece of work – the knitter or the pattern maker? Is knitting done for the pleasure of knitting itself, or the final product? And, can knitting save your sanity? This is a cozy, leisurely read written for knitters or knitter wanna-be’s.

An interesting idea, but got a bit repetitive after a while. A great concept, but lacked a bit in follow through.

Much better and funnier than I thought, but truth be told, this book would only appear to a knitter or someone who likes drawn out hand projects.

An "I" book (as in "I did this"). No patterns.
