Add a little color to your life at last! A reference book dedicated exclusively to intarsia. For an aficionado of this color knitting technique, Anne Berk offers an expansive supplement to traditional ways of working, and also an easily accessible way of working intarsia In The Round (ITR), something many of us have eschewed for ourselves, and also our students, saying it’s possible, but not worth it. Annetarsia Knits dispels this myth with comprehensive overall instructions, including problem-solving skills and a host of details to help unravel much of the mystery of intarsia in general as well as ITR. Clear photographs, and a wide range of projects designed to show novices and more experienced knitters the way into newly charted territory, are most helpful. Annetarsia Knits is suitable for all knitters wishing to add a little color to their life. Each project includes helpful specific guidance to make the knitting manageable, enjoyable and beautiful. Additionally, Anne introduces us to her large knitting community who share their stories, and color or pattern variations on many of her designs, giving the book a warmth unexpected in a work devoted primarily to one knitting technique. I’m sure that all of us whose designs were included are delighted to have been part of this very attractive work, which should have a place on every knitter’s bookshelf for years to come.  –Nancy Powell Thompson

Anne’s elegant technique for intarsia in the round transforms something we knitters have struggles with into a nimble, even joyful, process. Her solution is so beautiful that you will wonder why it hasn’t always been done this way; from now on it will be.”
–Cat Bordhi
Anne took a leap, and a loop! Her brave, creative, and curious leap of faith opened doors to new ways of thinking, seeing, and doing. Thanks to her fabulous brain, persistence, and hard work, she provides a way to knit intarsia in the round–all it takes is a loop! Annetarsia Knits is a definite must for any knitter’s library.”  –Tina Newton
With Annetarsia, Anne Berk takes intarsia in the round out of the “no way” basket of knitting right to the front of the list. Excellent, clear photographs along with easy to follow text help all knitters use this techique in an every day way, rather than special occasions! Definitely belongs in the colorwork section of your library! I’ve shown Annetarsia to a few students and they’ve said “Really? That’s it? I can do that!”
