Lovely projects but rather more inaccuracies than I'd like.,

This review is from: Knitting Scandinavian Slippers and Socks (Paperback)
The slippers in particular are very cute and I have learnt a lot about 2 colour knitting using this book. Diagrams are excellent but the text leaves a lot to be desired. Just as well you are knitting a pair so you can get the second one right first time having found the errors with the first. A major error in that it is contradictory is that the instructions for the basic slipper say at the start that the soles are knitted using the more usual stranded technique, but when you follow the detailed instructions you find yourself knitting the whole in twined knitting. Similar errors appear in several places. Also the instructions are for 2 circular needles and while the author says that double pointed needles could be used there is no help with this at all. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed making my first slipper although there seems to be no quick way to do twined knitting so it's a long process.
