Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac gives full scope to the author's tireless imagination through a year's worth of seasonal projects, catering to the needs of knitters who would like to design their own work.

The Almanac is designed to the northern seasons but may easily be adapted to the southern hemisphere. It begins with an Aran sweater and proceeds to February baby things, a March Shetland, April blanket, May mittens, and so on through the months, completing the zodiac with November moccasin socks and a December last-minute wishbone sweater.

Projects are completed in the midst of canoe trips, fishing expeditions, travel, and snowstorms. The author continuously comments on the project, its history, other ancient and modern customs, and personal beliefs.

The author works step by step through her designs, suggesting alternative methods and ideas as she goes...the patterns are classic and historically suited to wool. Designs are easily adapted, allowing knitters to create new, individual projects. Hints and tips (such as how to measure gauge when working a pattern and tips for baby's items) will guide and help knitters at all levels. The Knitter's Almanac will provide at the very least a year's worth of knitting pleasure for intermediate to advanced knitters.

Elizabeth Zimmermann's passionate opinions, as well as her years of experience, love of wool craft and delightful style, reflect her English upbringing and long residence in the Wisconsin woods. The "Busy Knitter", as she calls herself, is one of the most charming and informative, as well as "unventive" (her word) knitter-authors.
