Positives:
It had a couple of interesting pages on dye lengths in yarn and how it can affect pooling and shows a number of stitches that can be used to break up areas of colour.

That said, the stitches shown are fairly obvious - slip stitches, moss, etc. - and the majority of the book is taken up by outdated patterns in insane yarn colours, which killed it for me.

In the end I just couldn't take it seriously. This book perpetuates old (bad) craft stereotypes and missed a golden opportunity to showcase the beauty of some gorgeous hand dyed yarns by using outmoded fashions and aesthetics. A shame, really.

Having bought some Noro Silk yarn I was puzzling over how to avoid horrible colour transitions and pooling, when I saw this book in an article in The Knitter. I ordered it straight away and found the book crammed with excellent ideas on how to knit with variegated yarn.

Thoroughly recommended!

Love this one - it's filled with hints, tips, pictures and patterns - well worth the money spent. I recommend it.
