"Elizabeth Zimmermann is one of American's most ingenious and creative knitters. She approaches her craft in a craftsmanlike manner, with both imagination and respect, but also with an unfailing sense of humor. In Knitting Without Tears she sets forth her delightful 'philosophy of knitting' in witty, readable prose that will inspire any knitter - beginner, intermediate or advanced - with an enhanced enthusiasm for the medium of knitting and the things that it can do. Her designs are easy to follow, fun to work, and full of common-sense solutions to technical problems. Knitting Without Tears definitely belongs on every knitter's bookshelf."
