Lovely, simple designs
on 16 March 2012
Really lovely book, images are photographed and styled really well. I will be knitting quite a few projects from this book and with there being 60 to choose from your bound to find a new project with ease.
However whilst most of the projects are really lovely a few are fillers, there are 2 different hot water bottle covers, really I don't think I own a hot water bottle let alone want to knit a cover for one. About 10 projects are felted, I'm generally not a fan of felting but there is a hat pattern that may sway me, the book does have a section on felting if you have not attempted it before, however the instructions are for a top loader or a front loader if you can open the door, I don't have either so i will have to research further in order to felt my projects. Of the two sweater patterns both are roll neck! Urgh does anyone actually wear those horrible things, I would be investigating other options for the necks if I were to knit them.
There are a lot of beautiful projects, cushions, blankets, throws and wraps that I will be kept busy knitting for a long time. Plus the book is just lovely to look at, really quite inspiring.
