    It’s so neat to watch a technique (or an approach to knitting and thinking about knitting, really) like this get passed down and modified into new custom skills and knowledge as well as custom knits! Kind of like fairy tales retold, or cover songs that reinvent the original… What a neat process! (So yeah, I appreciated the audio!)

  2. Julianne Q says:

    the book looks awesome!

  3. Love the audio! It’s so funny to hear a published knitwear designer go all “fangirl” over another designer, knowing how many non-designing knitters would do the same over her.

    Thanks for entering me in the giveaway.

    I just learned to knit a month ago, but I am hooked. Love it. I already have more yarn than I can knit up in a year. But, I dont have any pattern books yet. This would be my first. Looks awesome!

    Wow, all of those pieces look lovely! I really want to knit myself a dress or skirt, but I’m afraid it won’t flatter my figure.

    I have flipped through Kristina’s book and I love that she has taken the construction ideas of Barbara Walker’s wonderful book and created such beautiful designs. This gorgeous book is at the top of my Christmas wish list!!

    Barbara Walker is amazing, and “Modern Top-Down Knitting” looks equally amazing. I hope it will help me succeed in my quest to knit a well-fitting pullover.
