  6. I also bought this book on sale, and thought it would be a good resource to get our knitting guild to organize a knit along of some kind We re kind of a well established group that just sits and knots once a month Wish we could be a bit , ahem, dynamic or something It just may not be in the cards.I m not sure if this book is what I thought it was It doesn t have much new content to me Maybe if I didn t read so many blogs and ravelry and stuff, then I wouldn t know all this already Still a good r [...]


  7. I found this book at my local library This book is an important book for those interested in organizing an online or meetup knit a long KAL I found the information as well as the patterns interesting the patterns themselves offer a knitter history of how successful KAL s are I like how the author organized the information and introduced other established knitter s through exploring their KAL s and how to establish your own successful KAL A valuable resource for knitter s.


  8. I really loved reading all the history personal stories of past knitalong experiences I originally bought this book to help me organize a craftalong with some friends, but I found the entire book wonderful Everything in this book gave me some great ideas for when I start my craftalong, but I do wish there was a bit on organizing one With only 3 pages on that particular subject, it was a tad bit disappointing.


  9. This book offers some very unique patterns design ideas, which I find very refreshing It totally sparks your creativity, and makes you want to reach out and knit with and for others I was one of the lucky ones that was able to partake in the knitalong for the book barn raising quilt, and meathead hat It was so much fun partaking in this virtual knitalong I also love that it takes recycling, refashioning, and reknitting into consideration.


  10. I wrote this, so no stars or reviews It was one of my favorite things to write And the majority of it was written by my husband and co author Martin John Brown, so I can say that all his pieces are great I can also say that the photography by Michael Crouser is gorgeous, and the hundred amateur photos from knitters around the world are amazing.


  11. thoroughly enjoyed this book and looking forward to knitting a couple patterns from it a very easy and sweet read the layout of the book is very well executed i had a great time skimming over the pages multiple times it s fun to come across comments and pictures of bloggers i read definitely a good addition to a knitter s library.


  12. The historical tidbits about knitalongs were fun to read, and the additional resources listed at the end of each section were great jump off points for digging deeper into the different subjects The only reason I can t give this one a higher rating is because the patterns weren t that impressive They were okay, but not great.


  13. Why knit together That s the question this books sets out to answer and in nearly 160 pages, it does a great job There are various knitalong diaries and profiles of knitters along with excellent patterns some that lend themselves to collaborative knitting and group projects The Blessingway Blanket and Entomology Hat and Mitten Set are alone worth the price of the book.


  14. I love this book, and not just because I was a Meathead Hat knitter for it While my hat s picture isn t in there, there are plenty of fantastic projects, along with smart essays about how knitting has worked in the context of communities I ve made two projects already from the book, and the directions are clearly written Lovely photos, too


  15. A very beautiful book about knitalongs It explains how this modern phrase has historical roots Plenty of patterns and tips about hosting one s own knitalong This book tailors a lot to the internet crowd as well as women in particular A few cute patterns to try spiral blanket, meathead hat with crayon pocket , and the barnraising quilt.
