When Hunter Hammersen, a wonderful knitter and author of 6 books (with a 7th on the way!), agreed to review my book, I was pretty psyched. I'm deeply touched, now, that she called it a "reference" book.
I've always made the distinction between "reference" and "pattern" books in knitting. I wrote patterns for Sock Architecture to make it accessible and great for as many knitters as possible, but, at its heart, I want it to be a book that shows you the path, allowing you to make your own choices and get exactly what you want out of your knitting. So, definitely a reference book!
What a great way to end the week!
