I had the pleasure of doing a quick interview with Carri Hammett author of Mittens and Hats for Yarn Lovers: Detailed Techniques for Knitting in the Round at TNNA Winter 2011. Thanks Carri! Stan Amineko, Jane Doe Amineko, and I loved hangin' out with you!
This book is fabulous! Before Christmas I posted the full pattern of the cabled rib hat here that I just fell in love with!

This book goes beyond a collection of projects to teach the reader useful information about the yarns and stitch patterns. Every project in Mittens and Hats for Yarn Lovers teaches the knitter something unique about the yarns/fibers that are used. Lessons are learned by knitting mittens and hats for kids and adults. Styles include quirky, perky, classic, and luxe—something for everyone! Projects contain variations knitted in different fibers, color combos, and stitch patterns.
Carri Hammett owns a successful yarn shop and has an extensive background in fiber arts. Her shop is wildly successful because she stays ahead of the trends and constantly encourages her customers to try new things.
