4.0 out of 5 stars Good for all, 15 Jun 2010
I would not have bought this book had I not been admiring a very simple baby coat being made by a friend. She showed me the book and I fell for the lovely designs. They are really simple to knit with clear pictures explaining all the techniques used. I think it is ideal for experienced knitters as well as beginners as those who (like me) have been knitting for ever, can always do with a stock of simple baby designs to work on when there is something particularly gripping on the TV. No - I do not mean the football - perhaps a Wallander episode or World Ice Skating Championships.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Lace, 15 Jun 2010
I adore this book, it is really lovely to browse through and I can't wait to try some of the patterns. The carts look easy to follow and it is lovely to get a lace book that features garment patterns other than shawls for a change. There are patterns for a Christening gown, gloves, hats (a particularly beautiful sun hat!) and a really lovely jacket that I cannot wait to try. The shawls and wraps are lovely and vary in difficulty from very easy to challenging - I can see that this book will keep me going for some time.
Blankets and Throws to Knit: Patterns and Piecing &hellip by Debbie Abrahams

This book is addictive! I love knitting these blankets, the patterns are straightforward and you get a sense of accomplishment with every square created. The yarns are lovely to work with and the finished products are stunning. I cannot believe that I managed to finish three of these beautiful blankets as I have a rep for bags containing unfinished sweaters, but this method solves that one!
