A new collection of 30 projects that will take you on knitting adventures. Gardiner and Shayne wind their way through patterns for adults, children and homes, including patterns by other knitwear designers such as Bonne Marie Burns. Helpful and humorous sidebars discuss the pitfalls of the sweater coat (including bathrobe syndrome), the beauty of Shetland wool, how to make a stitch marker out of citrus peel or tin foil, and the Holy Crap moment, where a pattern breakthrough occurs. Gardiner and Shayne alternate personal anecdotes throughout, with an especially enjoyable piece by Shayne about participating in the Tennessee State Fair knitting contest.

I do love the healthy, happy atmosphere of the M.-D. books. They are my favourite antidote to the almost pedantic 'facts only' knitting books.

Great patterns, amusing stories. I like this almost as much their first collaboration. And the swiffer cover/ dog coat is to die for!
