When a woman's job and image require a jacket or suit, a beautiful knitted jacket is the perfect fit. In this age of separates, the appeal of wearing a hand-knit jacket is clear -- individual in colour, style, and shape; easy to wear and pack; a memorable mate to a wide range of separates. Whether the inspiration is Armani or Chanel, Jean Frost gives you the confidence that makes knitting a jacket a pleasure. She is a professional: experienced, low-key, efficient. From taking initial measurements to the final finish, she breaks the process into easy steps. Twenty patterns cover a wide range of classic styles and yarn choices. The knitting is in the easy/intermediate range. The details that make the look are integrated into the knitting. These jackets are real-life knitting for women with real lives.
Jean Frost’s expertise with tailored knitting is showcased in this thorough compendium of fabric construction for couture jackets. The stitches are arranged into families that indicate the type of woven material they imitate—houndstooth, quilted stitch, herringbone, basket weave, twill, chevron, tweed, and fabric stitch. A full-size swatch worked in knitting worsted is accompanied by instructions in charts and words that introduce the multiple stitches. Stitch and row gauge as well as needle size for each swatch provides a useful starting point for knitters. Multiple variations of these stitches are displayed and knitters are instructed that adding additional colors, fibers, or yarn can dramatically transform the template. Using clearly illustrated techniques and explanations for how, when, and why to add edge stitches for perfect finishing, this is a fitting follow up to Jean Frost’s previous jacket-specific crafting books.

Mark Broken Wing, a Native American and a successful San Francisco attorney, is thrust into uncovering his brother’s killers on a Northern California Reservation. In the process, he not only uncovers his brother’s killer, with ties to drug trafficking, but also his firm’s connection to the same criminal organization. Most importantly, he reestablishes a relationship with the woman he never stopped loving and discovers a daughter he never knew he had. Pressed by an important case Mark has to litigate, worth millions for his firm and a partnership for him, he convinces his firm to allow him to attend his brother’s funeral and look into his brother’s death, just for a few days. On meeting Jennifer at the funeral, the woman he still loves after many years of separation, a new relationship starts to form. Her initial motive is to have him to stay to fully investigate his brother’s murder and how it is connected to his brother’s activism in trying to regain Indian land and lumber rights. In the process of his investigation, he is forced to see the continued daily poverty of his people, which begins to change him. His investigation is thwarted at every turn by people he least expected. Jennifer’s father’s company, through bribery, gained control of the wealth from the timber extracted from Indian land. Eventually, he discovers more than timber is taken from the land. Marijuana flourishes in the forest with the aid of a boyhood friend and is distributed by organized criminals and the lumber company. The reservation land yields wealth but not for the people that live there. In the course of Mark’s investigation, he discovers incriminating evidence, and to prevent him from revealing his discovery, his daughter is kidnapped in exchange for the documents.
