Elizabeth's long-awaited opus to garter stitch is finally here. Imagine decades of sketches, jottings, and notes that have been carefully curated by her grandson Cully (Meg's son) and assembled into a new book. It's called Knit One Knit All (I heard mumblings that an alternative title was to be "Knit One Purl None").

It's not a "how-to" book on garter stitch, it's EZ's personal creative riff on garter-stitch. It also includes some gorgeous watercolors by Elizabeth. Here's the review!

There is a definite Bohus Knitting feel to EZ's hats, and the crown of the second is ingenious. I hope to be able to make one soon.

I especially like the second hat on Jared's blog!

I got my new EZ book two days ago, and have been pouring over the pictures. Though I really shouldn't start yet another project, I feel one coming on.

I am awaiting my copy, too. On a related note, Jared Flood blogged today about two recently discovered EZ hats.

I bought the book, and it has some simply wonderful patterns...The slippers with the pointy toes are on my list as soon as I finish my current knitting project.

Thanks for the review. There are pictures up now for quite a number of the patterns at Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/knit-one-knit-all---elizabeth-zimmermanns-garter-stitch-designs/patterns

I do have to say that I love the hats! They look so ingenious.
The book is on my list of books to buy.

I've been anxiously waiting for this to come out. My copy is (hopefully!) on its way. I wish I had discovered EZ 35 years ago when I first began to knit.

How do.

So I guess I'll take the fan club mantle & head back to EZ land: how cool was she?! What a pioneer on so many levels, what an enthusiastic knitter who spoke her mind & forged some new trails, what a family member who inspired her offspring & then their offspring. What a legacy.

Thank you, Clara, as always for bringing us all these wonderful reviews & wonderful news. Your review is lovingly written & beautifully worded. Your appreciation for EZ comes shining through loud & clear. Thanks too for sharing your admiration & respect & love of EZ.

I would have wanted this book anyway but Clara's review made me want it even more. I went right from her review to order the book and can't wait for it to come.

On my short list of books to take to Afghanistan is The Opinionated Knitter. I'll probably add the Almanac and now I can promise myself the new book when I get there! Kind of a welcoming gift for myself from Elizabeth. That's the kind of incentive that will truly help me get through six weeks of training beforehand! Thanks, Clara, for the great review.

Great review, Clara! I got goose bumps looking at the poll results--when I voted 91% knew who EZ was. I think there should have been one more poll answer though--Been there, done that, and have the book! It is indeed a lovely book and Cully should be very proud.

Your review was wonderful Clara. Oh how I love EZ. And oh how I love her garter st patterns. Your delightful review makes me want to leave work and go buy it NOW!
