Full of original designs, this book includes instructions and charts for 22 sweaters, three vests, four fitted-arch socks, and three convertible-top mittens, each rendered in four-color fashion photography taken on-site at Meg's home. A section on techniques includes a glossary of relevant knitting terms, the famous EZ Percentage System, and various ways to cast on, bind off, increase, and decrease.

Meg Swansen runs Schoolhouse Press, a publishing company and mail order business, and Knitting Camp, an annual retreat for knitters. She is the author of Hand Knitting with Meg Swansen. She lives in Pittsville, Wisconsin.From Library Journal:
When Swansen's mother, Elizabeth Zimmermann, died last November, knitters all over the world mourned the passing of an influential author and teacher who introduced the concept of the "thinking knitter" to a whole new generation. Swansen carries on her mother's delight in traditional styles knitted in wool with great attention to the construction details. Like her mother, she also turns a pretty phrase. In addition to 21 designs for pullovers, cardigans, vests, and stockings appropriate for experienced knitters, Swansen introduces readers to techniques rarely discussed in other knitting books--like crocheted steeks and knitting backwards. Highly recommended for public libraries and academic textile collections.
