I am in love this book!. I have made the sampler and one cardigan out of the knitpicks DK wool. I am working on a second cardigan in a soft plymouth cotton for summer. This is the best fit I have ever had. Hope you enjoy the book as much as I have. I shared it at my local knitting guild and 2/3 of the ladies also bought the book. I wonder if the author is still alive? I would love to follow her blog if she would have one. If anyone has this information ,or her website could you please pass it on? thank you . June

Thank you for friending me. I've been a lot more active on Ravelry than here the last several months. There was while I couldn't be found anywhere last year... I'm just kinda getting back into things a little again. If you have a Ravelry acct, I'm also Elianastar there and you can find me almost daily in the Knit Picks Lovers group. :-)

I know for certain she was still alive, as of Feb 21, 2010, because she sent me a PM about my Sampler @ Ravelry... so unless something has happened to her since then, she is still alive. She has been having some sort of computer issue with Ravelry, so she hasn't been able to do much there, but she will email a response if you want to talk with her. :-)

I did include her email address in that comment, but for some reason, it doesn't show... I'll try again: sweaterworkshop@msn.com

The most recent edition of the book is the second edition, May 25, 2002: http://bit.ly/aQ9SNe
This edition is available her at KP.

Yes, Jacqueline Fee IS still alive but I'm not aware of her having any blog. However, in the very back of the book, there is an email address where you can contact her... I know because I did several times. :-) . She also has a group on Ravelry: Jackie Fee's Sweater Workshop. Her Ravelry name is "swknitster." She is not terribly active online, anywhere, but if you email her, she will answer you and she is very sweet and charming. :-)

Perhaps someone in KP customer service can help. ♥c

Okay, June, I've been trying all evening to find out some specifics on Jacqueline Fee and have not been successful. I have not been able to find either a website, a blog for her or any kind of biography. I did see some reference in someone else's 2008 blog that Ms. Fee lives in the New England area but that is all the information I could find. ♥c

I agree with you. It was up dated a while back but the only changes was a aran style sweater that was added from what a knitting friend told me, since she also has the old one. It is so great to feel so liberated. I am a larger person so I can get a better fit with this book as I am also short in stature.

I bought this book many years ago when I worked at a LYS. I didn't know it was still in print and I am wondering whether it has been updated or changed in any way. It was one of the first books that made me start setting myself free from ALWAYS using patterns. I started designing my own and changing patterns. Very liberating. I guess it started me really thinking about and comprehending the mathematics of knitting design.
