This is a beautiful book - a joy to look through. There are many patterns in here I want to knit. The photography is great and the styling is up-to-date unlike many other fair isle knitting books out there. The colours are bright and contemporary but I love them. If you want more subtle colours - choose them! Yes, some of the yarns chosen are expensive but I rarely use the yarn stated in patterns for that reason. Just find a cheaper substitute which is easy with these patterns because most of them are double knit, 4 ply or aran. The patterns are not groundbreaking - bobble hat, fair isle yoke jumpers, tank tops, crew-neck cardigan, snood (cowl), cushions - but what makes them special is that they are traditional with a twist which is just what I was looking for. I haven't tried knitting any of the patterns yet so can't say if they are easy to follow, accurate etc.

I was almost put off buying this book due to the previous negative review so was pleasantly surprised when the book arrived. It is full of beautifully photographed bright patterns some in colours not to my taste but can be easily substituted, as can the yarn used. There are patterns for hats, tops cushions, socks, a pair of gloves and an inspirational framed knitted sampler which having recently bought some picture frames in the sale I didn't know what to do with can now use to great effect! The patterns are clearly written and the overall feel from the book is one of freshness and vitality and whilst I will definitely tone down some of the colours used I think this is a lovely book.

Very new to knitting in general so this book is perhaps not for the complete beginner. However, the knits in this are gorgeous and I have started the heirloom blanket (although feel a little out of my depth). All the patterns use Debbie Bliss wool which is perhaps a little pricey for some looking for a cheap and cheerful knitted item, however there is definitely room for improvisation with other cheaper brands!! All in all the book contains beautiful knits for those looking to venture outside their comfort zone!!

This is a lovely book with lots of great patterns. I knit a lot and still found plenty of useful tips. I will make many projects from this book.
