I bought this book after seeing Belinda Boaden's Stonor on Ravelry.
This is a delightfully well designed lace and cable cardigan with the right amount of vintage styling- the lace is also not too challenging.
So many lace patterns are rather beyond my skill level or in too heavyweight yarn for a summer lace cardigan.
Personally I do not like lace in chunky yarns- it looks outmoded to me even if it makes it easier to knit.

The rest of the book is equally delightful, with a very sweet looking young model and a charmingly normal size model displaying the garments which are well-photographed and detailed.
The charts are clear as are the instructions.

Items include a lace vest/tank top which could easily be worn over a dress, an exquisite lacy frilled cape ( cast on 660 in laceweight- maybe not!), a crossover top with cape sleeves and a nice waistcoat .
Patterns vary in complication and skill level, but I think most knitters would find something here to please from the 20 designs.

There are some complicated lace stitches for the advanced knitter to master, but also mitts and an interesting and simplish scarf or two.

Yarns are from Fyberspates in all their varying weights. This is a delicious mix of merino and silk which is hand dyed in a delicious palette of shades. The yarn is not cheap but then again you could substitute for rather less sumptuous results.
The book is softback and mine got bent in the post, but I like softback as it less heavy to carry in my knitting bag.

A really well thought out book with patterns for everyone. Wonderful photography and clear instructions. Would suit everyone from novice knitter to someone who wants to try something a little different. Pair this book with some of the Scrumptious yarn and you will be a happy knitter!

I bought this collection as soon as it came out and have to say I love it! So far I've knitted Childry (a small shawl) and am halfway through Challow, a gorgeous jumper. The patterns are all very clear and well-written; very easy to follow.

Good quality book. some interesting patterns. Would be even nicer if scrumptious had some shaded or multicoloured yarns as I like the texture and feel but colours a bit limited.
