How many people want to make time to knit and to expand their knitting skills but get sidetracked by a knitting project that is either too easy and boring or too difficult for their current skill level? Probably quite a few, in author Wiseman's opinion. Her solution is to work with beautiful yarns to make small, wearable projects such as scarves and shawls that do not require a slavish attention to gauge. An experienced knitting teacher, Wiseman here includes a wealth of knitting tips and techniques plus patterns for 20 scarves, shawls, and stoles that illustrate a variety of techniques, including diagonal knitting lace, short rows, entrelac, and intarsia. Warmly recommended for all knitting collections.
