A birthday prezzie from Darren that was a quick and fun read. Not quite as humourous as it looked like it might be from the cover and I found it all a little one sided in its outlook at modern young knitters but it is just a personal look from the author and not trying to be a balanced research document. What I found most incongruous was that after spending a couple of hundred pages going on about how we today don’t want to knit the same things as our grandmothers did in their day the end of the book was filled up with traditional looking patterns for tea cosies and hot water bottle covers. Not quite sure if that was irony or not.
