I received my copy yesterday (I pre-ordered it from Interweave) and spent some time in bed with it.

I haven't had time to read through all the essays but I already liked many of the patterns. My only gripe so far is a typo in Clara's name in the table of contents

Oh, knowing Ann she's very sad about that! I am going to have to check this one out. It's been at least a month since I bought any knitting books.

At least it is spelled correctly in the acknowledgments and contributors and the bonus from your link is that Clara's essay is there to preview.

I had time to read all the essays -- they all invite further thoughts, as good essays do. The essay by Lisa R. Myers from a shop owner's perspective was very helpful.

For those who are interested in supporting environmental sustainability, I would suggest reading Joanne Seiff's Knit Green. Per her advice in the book, I am thinking of writing a little list for myself of the things that I could do or try to "knit green".
