It's been a long while since I blogged, and I am back. I have a great news to share with you. Faina's and my new book, The Art of Seamless Knitting, has been getting excellent reviews since its release last month. It's been among the top 10 best selling book in knitting on Amazon. The latest awesome review we got was a STARRED review in the Library Journal this past weekend.

"Ask a group of knitters to name their least favorite part of knitting a garment, and many will say seaming. This aversion has led to an abundance of patterns—especially for sweaters—that don’t involve seaming. In this guide, experienced knitwear designers Merchant-Dest and Goberstein explore the whys behind seamless knitting, describe the various shapes of seamless garments and accessories, and educate knitters on best practices for seamless knitting. For the truly seam-averse, there’s even a section about adapting flat-knitting patterns for seamless knitting in the round. Eleven patterns—most for sweaters—are included. VERDICT Rarely do knitting books contain both gorgeous patterns and authoritative information on technique; this title is a notable exception. The background information about seamless knitting is useful, and the patterns are beautiful."—Nanette Donohue, Champaigne, P.L., ILLibrary Journal Reviews (June 15, 2013)
