    " This book is filled with fun ideas on how to fill your home with knitting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacquelyn | 2/3/2014

    " Love these guys. They have a great sense of humor, take knitting not too seriously, but really seriously. Love their blog and all of the patterns I've made of theirs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 2/1/2014

    " I love their sense of humor, practical approach to knitting. Great way to get of fear of steeking! And a couple of good intarsia tips too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/26/2014

    " Bought this book yesterday and I want to knit nearly everything out of it. Besides the great patterns, I love their writing style. Very very funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 1/21/2014

    " liked this one too. more over-the-top knitting humor and exciting fair isle stuff i'm looking forward to trying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 1/18/2014

    " I love the non-traditional patterns in this book. Especially the sweater covered in poetry...lovely work of art, but it's probably not something I'll every actually knit, let alone, wear! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meggityb | 1/15/2014

    " Not as chockful of things I want to make as the first book but still a mighty good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aimee | 1/9/2014

    " I'm almost to the sleeve stitches of the cardi-cosy, (p. 13)and it is fabulous. The instructions are a little gapp-y but it makes for a satisfying challenge figuring out the puzzle of the in-between rows. The hand towel on p. 140 is a fun knit. The tone of the book is cheerful and humurous, even while pondering some craft and knitting conundrums. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 1/9/2014

    " I love these author's blog, but this was the first book of theirs that I have read. If you enjoy knitting, a nice book of patterns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Polly | 11/27/2013

    " I really enjoyed reading his book more than the first book, The Curious Knitters' Guide. There is a lot of really useful information in here, from fair isle to top-down sweaters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 11/8/2013

    " This book is a hoot. It has some knitting patterns, but I the the writing is so fun. They have a fabulous sense of humor and it just makes one want to knit, knit, knit! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 11/3/2013

    " hilarious and cute patterns! I will probably check this book out again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 10/27/2013

    " Very enjoyable read; patterns to go back to at some time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trina | 10/20/2013

    " Fun to read and full of things I would actually make. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 10/7/2013

    " Another batch of practical, relatively-simple, very classic patterns from the M-D ladies, presented with their signature brand of wit. Very enjoyable! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meryl | 9/24/2013

    " Not quite as much fun as the other Mason Dixon book (this one has more clothes, the other one was more household goods), but still a keeper! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 9/4/2013

    " How can I not love Kay and Ann? They really really crack me up. I want to knit all these projects but I might do one. Which one I dunno. I borrowed the book from the library so I need to decide before I return it. ARG THE PRESSURE....oh...I can always borrow it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth666ann | 4/18/2013

    " Laugh-out-loud writing about knitting; I particularly enjoyed the tale of competing in the county fair and also the "hall of shame" at the end of the book. The patterns are interesting and the tutorial on fair isle knitting will be very useful to me; I have been looking for this sort of thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sunny | 3/23/2013

    " There is a sweater in this book that is killing me. I cannot wait til I can do this. I'm so in love with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 3/11/2013

    " Just started going through this. More straight forward patterns than the first book, but still the great advice. The book is written as if they're sitting there telling you the stories themselves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 2/17/2013

    " Again, Love these Ladies!! Really like that everything in this book looks hard (projects I would never try). But they are really quite simple. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/27/2012

    " There's a lot of reading in this book about knitting! Gardiner and Shayne keep a very funny, very readable knitting blog, and their talents transfer well to this book. The patterns in the book aren't as accesible and appealing as those in their first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joelle | 12/15/2012

    " I enjoyed this book much more than the first. The patterns are lovely, too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheryl | 10/20/2012

    " Not as good!!! There is only one pattern that I will even attempt. The first one is a gem, but this one is a disappointment. The stories are good, but the patterns are all TOOO HARD!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hope | 4/5/2012

    " This book was funny. But the actual patterns I didn't find appealing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 12/28/2011

    " M-D knitters are the best! I expect hours of fun knitting and amusing reading in the future. Thanks, Kay and Ann. Keep it up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/23/2011

    " Great photos! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 11/20/2011

    " The follow-up to their first book, the patterns are more complex this time around but the humor is just as funny. Ann and Kay have such chemistry and rapport -- I love these two ladies! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 9/30/2011

    " Eh. Knitters are smarter than this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmine | 6/8/2011

    " couple patterns in here I'd like to knit. More than their first book. Love the Kiki Mariko vest. and I plan to make the bomber cap for Ozzie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 5/29/2011

    " Fun looking knitting projects. Not really full of helpful tips or basic instructions. Some projects (Christmas stockings) seem more useful than others (Kippah). This could be a nice guide into fair isle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 3/21/2011

    " Read the book, but probably not going to make any of the projects just yet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 6/30/2010

    " Eh. Knitters are smarter than this. "

    " I listened to the audio version while on vacation with my in-laws.

    I enjoyed this book. I think I will have to check out the hard copy to take a peek at the patterns "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Theresa | 5/10/2010

    " Not as good as the first one. Not sure why but it could be because I don't really see myself making anything in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 3/8/2010

    " I love the non-traditional patterns in this book. Especially the sweater covered in poetry...lovely work of art, but it's probably not something I'll every actually knit, let alone, wear! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 12/11/2009

    " If I ever try Fair Isle, I will probably use one of these blanket patterns. Otherwise, I was mostly uninspired. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 11/25/2009

    " I love their sense of humor, practical approach to knitting. Great way to get of fear of steeking! And a couple of good intarsia tips too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 9/21/2009

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 8/12/2009

    " My knitting is so rudimentary I can probably only do one of the patterns described in this book, but it is such a fun read I find myself reading the patterns just for the laugh. I never thought a knitting book would have me laughing out loud. "
