Why are all of my books so banged up? Because I love them to death...and throw them in my knitting bags.

Lara's Library: Wendy Knits

Lara Neel - The Journal Gazette
I love the "aha!" moment she describes here.

Wendy D. Johnson was kind enough to appear on my podcast last April.

Wendy Knits was her first book. Now, she also has Socks from the Toe Up and Toe-Up Socks For Every Body. You can get links to them all on her website.

Don't let the black and white photos fool you - this book is packed with a lot of great knitting wisdom.

I haven't seen her other books, but I think this would be an easy one to overlook on the store's shelf. It's not a coffee-table book. It doesn't have hundreds of glossy photos, but it's worth having.

Wendy writes with humor and wit. She shares her failures and her success. She has simple, easy-to-understand projects for the beginner as well as more refined ideas for more advanced knitters.
