So pretty. Whatever else you'll think of the book, it's laid out really nicely, and makes you want to make all the stuff in it. One point. Clear patterns, and more than one photograph of most of the projects. Two points. All yarn available in the UK. Three points.
But now the downs...for the price of the book, you don't actually get many projects. It's laid out in colour order (what ?!!!) which makes very little sense - unless you go along with the book's philosophy. The sizes are a little limited.
However, I kept coming back to this book, looking at the pictures, working out if I'd make any of the pieces, and in the end I got it.
I'd recommend it to hard-core knitters but for the rest of you, you might want to wait for the paperback version (if there's going to be one).

For many of us who are jaded by the on slot of books by every knitter and want-to-be knitter, this would seem like a run of the mill presentation. Still it is good enough to add to the library and add to the repertoire. This is not just a pretty picture book; it has all the information to produce what you see, but may not actually have anything one would want as a project.

I love the blankets in this book, as my second ever project, I am attempting the colourful stripe blanket. Its beautiful photographed, and sectioned into colours. its a very contempory book, and highly recommended
