"Every book by Elizabeth Zimmermann is a treasure, but The Opinionated Knitter is my favorite. This book is a collection of a decade of Elizabeth’s newsletters, as well as letters, photographs, and stories about her life. The Opinionated Knitter contains directions for many of Elizabeth Zimmermann’s classic designs, like the Baby and Adult Surprise Jackets, the Fair Isle Yoke Sweater, or the Three Spiral Hat. While all Elizabeth Zimmermann patterns require you to do some arithmetic and customize the pattern for your particular yarn and measurements, the patterns in The Opinionated Knitter have the most thorough directions and best photography in any Elizabeth Zimmermann book.

"To round out my little, portable knitting world, I would add The Opinionated Knitter from Elizabeth Zimmermann. EVERYTHING is in there! Socks, hats, sweaters – everything. But, each project is presented in Elizabeth’s typical “loose” style so there is plenty of room for you to browse through the Stitch Collection booklets to add your own twist to whatever you knit!"
