5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, lovely ideas 16 Jan 2013
There are some really lovely patterns in here from some of my favourite books. I particularly like the wuthering height bedsocks, little girl bonnets and Golden Compass Lyra hood. Some of the lace patterns look a little bit hard (I'm a newish knitter and haven't yet worked out charts) but I intend to at least have a go at the socks!
