Happy Birthday to perhaps the most influential knitter that has ever graced the knitting needles, Elizabeth Zimmermann! Elizabeth, who advocated for knitting in the round and continental knitting, and who pioneered the Pi Shawl, i-cord, and her EPS (Elizabeth's Percentage System) for sweater design, would've been 101 years old today. (She died at 89 years old, Nov, 1999.)
I have read her books, watched her PBS series (which is still floating around the internet!), and learned a lot from this amazing knitter.
Raise your needles in cheer to Elizabeth!
