This review is from: Shades of Winter: Knitting with Natural Wool (Hardcover)
As ever, the most inspirational knitting patterns are always to be found in books, and this is certainly no exception!
I absolutely love the fact that many of the projects are much more designer looking, sometimes in a subtle way, sometimes more obviously. Photography beautiful.
There are some absolutely stunning patterns in here, LOVE the Holey Top - a soft, loose sweater with a real designer edge, incredibly appealing and wearable, the Pleated cap, gloves, neckwarmer, the Cabled Cardigan and the Sweater with Relief Stitch Borders is a lovely slouchy, cosy, unusual comfort blanket with sleeves!
If you are looking for patterns of garments that could have come from your local high end boutique then there are certainly a few in here, and you get to choose the colour and, of course, have all the fun and excitement of creating it yourself!
The big question is how many knitting projects can a girl have on the go at once !.......now off to get several sets of 'pointy sticks' out, look through my stash AND have a trip to my local wool shop ( huge fun) and make a start, whoo oooo :))

Totally agree!! This books amazing, I love every pattern in it! I need to go and more pointy sticks as I only have 4 and it seems some of the patterns use 5.
