I like advanced knitting techniques and tend to work in the modular way (putting various ideas together and adjust/altering patterns). Epstein's Trilogy (Knitting On/Over/Beyond the Edge) are a must-have for knitters with a taste for individuality, craft finesse and a need for a library of inspiring ideas. The layout is very clear, uncluttered and professional - yet very accessible. Each book is subdivided into topics and visual samples within chapters are presented in one colour-rage (e.g. green, orange, pink, etc.). There are variations on themes to help with practical application and each chapter is headed by a fairly useful sample bigger project the instructions to which are given at the rear of the book in careful detail.
These books are not suitable for the novice or occasional knitter as much experience is generally needed in a variety of knitting skills (cables, lace, intarsia, fair isle, etc.) and many samples are very work intensive - either because of the complexity of the pattern or because of extensive 'finishing off'. And yet, a novice with aspirations may find much inspiration and motivation for further development. And at under £10 including P&P very affordable and value for money.

Always on the lookout for additions to my library for my business thought it would be a great buy. Surely was, but personally think for the more experienced knitter. Have tried the cabbage rose as an alternative for embellishment on a toy fairy I wasmaking - looked good. This is a book that I will come back to time after time and am sure I will find a use for most of the edgings,
