5.0 out of 5 stars Oh so lovely - ordered yarn straightaway 14 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There are some great things in this book - most of the best using the Regia Hand dyed effect yarns and the space dyed sock yarns. One could use other similar sock yarns though I am sure. I've taken the idea from the Hyacinth scarf and started on a blanket and ordered the yarn for the poppies stole. My daughter loves the striped scarves. However there are just as nice patterns in the booklet from Regia also designed by the same chaps.... Many of the ideas are not complicated but good use of yarns - though some will be very expensive, unless you have yarns in your stash some of the stoles and blankets are going to cost over 100 to make.

now a month later ...... makinng the poppies stole in the Regia Hand dye effect yarn, the yarn is a nightmare..... slippy and gets tangled all the time...

This is a beautifully produced book showing off not just the work of Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably but also gorgeous photographs of the things that inspire them - from nature, from pottery, from textiles. This is what I would term a coffee table book as it is wonderful just to look at the glorious photography and read about what inspires their design processes but often such books aren't really very practical with few if any patterns that you would really want to knit. This is what sets this book apart from the rest - it is full of some very doable ideas and patterns for both the beginner and the experienced knitter and encourages you to experiment and push your boundaries with the use of colour and texture. I am already on my second Hyacinth Scarf which is so easy, so quick to make but so effective using one 100g ball of Regia Stripe and one 20g ball of Rowan Kidsilk Haze. It is worth noting that the patterns are all for accessories such as scarves, stoles, throws, hats etc and not for actual garments.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 9 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Cushions, throws and scarves; the simplest projects.
Stripes and more stripes. Often the main colour theme is produced by variegated yarn.
Not artistic, not thrilling or inspiring. 'Glorious knitting' was his best book, unfortunately the garments are very dated now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of great patterns 2 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This has given me inspirations for patters for future projects even if I don't specifically use the patterns inside. Although I would have liked some more information on the best way to knit with multiple colours at the start.
