Beautiful patterns, 28 April 2012
I have recently bought this book and couldnt wait to get started, I have knitted the bag on the front cover as well as 3 other items in the book and all have turned out as stunning as the book showed. They were all easy to knit despite looking complicated in the photos. I used my own colours and have used Rowan dk cotton in my versions though I am sure that lots of dk wool would be just as good. Look at the length of yarn in each ball described and try to find a yarn of equal length and after a tension square you should be able to find a suitable substitute yarn but hey if you want to produce high quality items then use high quality wool, you'll spend lots of enjoyable hours knitting the patterns from this book so you will want to hand them over as heirlooms as they are so beautiful. In the meantime enjoy this book, the pictures alone are worth the cost of the book!
