If only ...
on 3 January 2012
If only ... this book had an index! I spend ages trawling back and forth through the chapters looking for a particular technique. Once I get there, it's explained really well, with clear diagrams.
If only ... the DVD had been made by a knitter! What a great opportunity lost. All too often the "over the shoulder" shot (excellent)was replaced by a "face on" view. That's no use if you want to see what's happening from the knitter's point of view. I was so distracted by the lighting reflected in Ann's spectacles that I missed some of the relevant information! I know, that's a piddling criticism, but valid to me.
All that aside, the book is well written, has excellent diagrams and instructions and I immediately got out the needles to make the intriguing Half Stranded Socks.
