Are you in a knitting rut or just want to try something new? The Knitter’s Life List could be just the spark to send the knitting part of your brain into overdrive. This book is full of fun and interesting information. I loved to pick it up at the end of my knitting day, when my hands were tired of knitting, but my brain still in knitting mode.

- Donna Druchunas, author of Successful Lace Knitting,

If you need a knowing friend to help guide you on the who, what, and where of knitting, this is your book. At its core, The Knitter's Life List is a book of possibilities…Steege surveys all the nooks and crannies of the knitting world and presents them in an easy, comprehensive overview—a Frommer's guide to the imaginary land of knitting. It points out all the most important people, places, and things of interest, still leaving lots of back streets for you to explore on your own.

- Beth Brown-Reinsel, instructor, knitwear designer, and author of Knitting Ganseys
