With over 45 designs to choose from, you will find something for every mood. This author is the owner of La Knitterie Parisienne, a distinguished local yarn store in Hollywood -- yes, "the" Hollywood -- where the book flap describes her in-store knitting circle as including such well-known directors and actors as Sofia Coppola, Daryl Hannah, and Kristin Davis. The patterns include ponchos, scarves, dresses, sweater sets, jackets, and afghans, using a variety of delicious yarns. The author has included practical tips on stitches, yarn selection, and hints on making the knitting experience as successful as possible. Various knitting techniques are covered with complete instructions and step-by-step color photos. Throughout the book, the author has included anecdotes about the celebrities who frequent her Los Angeles area store, in addition to her own story of starting to knit at age 5 in the city of her birth, Paris (France), and honing her craft for over 30 years since! This book includes a helpful index, plus glossary ot terms, list of abbreviations, knitting needle table, and a resource list! Softcover. 226 pages. HarperCollins Publishers, 2005.
