I saw a book several months ago in Michael's about knitting and fitting top down garments. I , being short sighted and oh ya cheap, did not buy it. I have not seen it since then nor can I find a reference on line. The book was written by an older gentleman and it looked very interesting. I really get tired of the knitting books that are written by women for women. If you have seen this book please let me know the name of the author.
I didn't take very seriously the polls that have been on line about publishing our (MWK) own book. But as I think about it and get frustrated when I look at books that are 1% on technique and 99% patterns that I would never knit, a book by ordinary knitting guys might just work. What seems to happen in the blogs here is that there is a never ending stream of helpful hints, work-a-rounds and cool pattern suggestions. Being a pharmacist when referencing printed medical information I find that a hugh percentage of books are written by scores of contributing authors with an editor putting it all together.
