Knitter's Review
December 13, 2002

Casey dreams of ChamonixKnitting books offer the ultimate escape.

We can indulge in endless knitterly excesses without lifting a finger or spending a penny on yarn. And yet the books remain by our sides, faithful and patient, until the day we're ready to indulge for real.

This week, please join me in a look at 18 of the most notable titles from 2002.


New This Week
We trace the high and low points of recent knitting books, including my votes for the biggest bloopers, most misleading titles, and best duo of the year. It's all in our On the Shelf: Books in Review.

Knit Happens Pencils!
Announcing the latest arrival in the boutique: bright purple pencils sporting the words "Knit Happens" in old-fashioned white typeface. Fun! Check them out.
