Design at its best, 10 Jun 2011
This is one of the best and most inspiring knitting books around. The modern designs are based heavily on traditional motives with bold and beautiful colour combinations. There are only 2 single colour patterns that use cables as design element, all other projects use stranded knitting and steeking. None is for the novice knitter and many projects use 3mm needles to create the stunning designs. Don't expect to finish them over a weekend, but they are worth the challenge. The instructions are laid out well with colour charts that are easy to follow. The biggest problem might be to find or replace the mostly Norwegian yarns used for the modells. Can't wait to start knitting.
