    1. What a great book! Beautiful patterns, fun text, and web extras to boot! It's exactly the high quality I expected from a project put together by Heather Ordover.Speaking of which, my copy was autographed by Heather Ordover, at the Printers Row Lit Fest, Chicago, 6/05/11. Thank you, Loopy Yarns!

    2. It's is a set of essays reflecting on classic literature.It's a knitting pattern book. Perhaps surprisingly, it functions beautifully as both.It takes a special group of book-loving knitters to latch onto A Tale of Two Cities and ask, "Just what was Madame Defarge knitting? Is there a pattern? Let's make one!" What makes the book work ultimately is that editor and writer Heather Ordover pulls it all together and imbues it with the joy of curiosity, discovery, and whimsy. Ordover is best known to [...]

    3. This collection is very different from just about every other knitting and crochet book that's been published.Where to begin? It is full of awesome and there are good things found within and beyond the slender volume. I know that I'm going to leave out something important.Heather is the host of CraftLit, a podcast of 200 episodes and counting that draws upon her combined loves and experiences of crafting and teaching literature. Cooperative Press is the brainchild of Shannon Okey. An objective o [...]

    4. Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, because this is a book of knitting patterns inspired by classic literature. We have a cap for the Ancient Mariner, a mobius hood for the mad woman in the attic, and (knitting project of all knitting projects) Madame Defarge's revolutionary shroud, encoded with secret messages. To state the obvious, this is a seriously cool book of patterns -- one providing some much-needed inspiration for me to move beyond my namby pamby beginner knits toward the world of kn [...]

    5. This is book of essays about classical literature that make you want to read more. And it is a book of knitting patterns that make you want to knit more. How to combine those? Well, stick a book in your ear - listen to audiobooks, or to CraftLit, and knit along with the story! You can make Jane Eyre's ubiquitous shawl (in a suitable discreet grey or maybe a bolder colour), a shawlette to cover up the bite marks on Mina Harker's neck, a great white scarf for Captain Ahab, or The print version ha [...]

    6. I love this book. What a great idea, knitting and crochet patterns inspired by famous characters from literature. I love that the designers have given a background to the story and the character they were inspired by. Warning, you will come away with not only a 'to knit' list but a 'to read' list as well but fear not, you can always search out craftlit and listen to the book whilst you knit :-)

    7. Ok, seriously cool. This is a multi-media book! The essays and patterns in the book were interesting and fun - and the web-site that accompanies the book offers additional links; recipes, project photos, and more info about the designers. Quite spiffy!I read through all the essays and pondered the patterns (I also fav'd the ones I'm most likely to knit on Raverlry). I have start-itis soooooo bad right now. But I MUST work on x-mas giftsI enjoyed the essays presenting the designer's perspective a [...]

    8. I love Craftlit, and was thrilled to get this companion piece. I was slightly disappointed to find that there are no project photographs here, but like the way it is integrated into the website. This might be one book where the digital version would really make a lot of sense.The essays are really good, if short. There is a good range of pattern difficulty, but not sure how many of them I will actually make

    9. i think i'd've been more into this book if it had pictures of the patterns but i understand why they had to save them for the companion website. i'd've been also more into it if i was more of a classics reader, which i'm not. there's supposedly a volume 2 in the works so maybe it will focus on some more modern lit?

    10. A great interactive knitting book which teaches more then just knitting dabbles in everything from dyeing (ahem my part in the work) to recipes!
