From Library Journal:

Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Without Tears (1973) inspired a whole generation of knitters to take up the craft and is still in print today. Like it, Myers's effort is fun to read whether you are a knitter or just want to learn a bit about the fascinating culture of knitting. Unlike Zimmerman's book, however, it is geared to a cyber age, with chapters on the online knitters' community, knitting in many cultures, and knitting as a way of giving back to society. Myers, who has a Ph.D. in English literature, covers knitting basics such as color, texture, and fiber in a series of essays each concluding with an illustrative pattern. The chapter on knitting in the computer age, for example, features directions for knitting a Palm Pilot cover, while the chapter on knitting to improve the world concludes with a pattern for a preemie cap. Recommended generally. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
