    1. I enjoyed reading this book and learning about some of the lovely and talented artisans across America. This book whets my appetite to be more creative but the actual patterns involved are far beyond my skill sets. The patterns might appeal to very advanced knitters. If you are not a skilled knitter you can still enjoy the beautiful knitted projects.


    2. After hearing Falick on a podcast and hearing the "story behind the book," I picked this up at the local yarn store to leaf through it -- and quickly remembered why I hand't bought it the first five times I'd looked at it. I find the concept of this book somewhat garbled -- is it a pattern book? If so, there aren't enough interesting patterns to make it worth the investment (most are very dated). Is it a profile book? If so, there really isn't enough in-depth info about either the yarn stores or [...]


    3. The gorgeous photographs of knitted wear and the collection of well-known American designers make this a one of a kind coffee book. There is at least one project in this book for the knitter who reads it; the rest are either admirable or unfathomable. Half the pieces are dated but others remain timeless. Someday I'd like to make the Kousa Dogwood Shawl, the Spice Market Wrap, and the La Plays Books (love me some Nancy Bush!). This book was a gift.


    4. Interesting from a social/historical context, but overall not as interesting as I would have liked. I listened to it on audiobook and felt that the narrator could have been more engaging. I probably would have been more interested if I were looking at the accompanying images and patterns!


    5. This book was really boring. There were a couple of good stories, but for the most part it was like being read resumes. I found myself tuning out a lot and wanted to give up after listening to the first CD. I couldn't wait for it to be over!
