A little bit of frilly nonsense in a sensible format,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Feminine Knits (Paperback)
Ball of mohair in hand, dpn's in the other, I headed off for the Lace Circle Sweater, made a detour round the Flower Jacket, decided I must knit the Diagonal Lace Jacket and eyed up the Short/Long Jacket on Page 27 before casting on for the Lace Circle - all in the full knowledge that the whole time the Lace Circle is getting itself knitted, I will be plotting my next move on the Flower Jacket. Fabulous patterns - apart from the knitted skirt. Anyone who is even a shade over a size 8 should NEVER wear a knitted skirt and then only after very serious contemplation of their fashion sense - but then that's a personal opinion only.
In short, a great book, clear instructions with a good range of interesting patterns over a wide choice of yarns and even a yarn substitution section. Some of the patterns might be a bit challenging for the novice but there's still plenty for the novice to get his or her teeth into. My sort of book.

Like "super nan" I love the book. I've just received it. Have not yet read it - must finish my son's blouson first!, but I've earmarked 2 cardigans and a lacy top. Must master American, but after deciphering English patterns from a French mothertongue, it should present no problem. Really looking forward to it!
