    I just went on and the text is pink on red texture background and I cannot read anything! Am I the only one seeing this? ONce I am in a blog site, the background is white and it’s much better. Just thought you might want to know.
    Thanks for all the info – it’s great!

      Hi Gaye,

      I’ve had a few people comment that it looks funny, but most people see the white background. I really don’t know what’s going on, but I’ll email you and try to get some more information and fix it. Thanks for letting me know.

    Elizabeth Zimmermann! Creative and funny – and vastly reassuring. Two of my favorite quotes –

    You are the boss of your knitting.

    Properly practiced knitting soothes the troubled spirit. And it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either.

    If you knit on circular needles, you owe a big debt to EZ. Also, she promoted knitting garments that required few or no seams. In the 50s, this was *radical*. Knitting Around is probably her best book to start with, but you can’t go wrong with any of them.

    I’m glad one of Debbie Stoller’s books made your “short list”; I always say she taught me to knit! I will second the recommendation of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s books — somehow I seem to hear her voice whenever I read her work.
