Knitting began in the 12th century in the Arab world but spread quickly. Nargi (Astounding Knits!) takes knitters on an around-the-world tour of traditional knitting. The history is the heart of the book, but there's so much more here, including interviews with well-known knitting experts, descriptions of unique yarns and techniques, and projects focused on each region's styles and traditions. This excellent--and very readable--reference to global knitting traditions belongs on the bookshelf of any knitter interested in the history and development of knitting. - Library Journal XPress
