This is the third edition of this book I have owned. The last two were borrowed and not returned.
I really don't mind though, as it shares the wisdom! If you are looking for a book of instructions then look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you are prepared to enter into almost a conversation whilst learning how to knit the items on the front cover, and a million and one other things as well, this is for you.
Erudite and informative, the patterns are accurate and inspiring. By the time you get to the end you will have the confidence to take on anything! AND it's in hardback, with aditional introductions and patterns, what more could a person ask?
