Overall, I'm glad I bought this on amazon for such a great price as I would be sorely disappointed if I had paid full price for it - I bought two Debbie Bliss books at the same time and based on that experience, I would never buy another.
The yarns used are - to be frank - expensive for something that's likely to get covered in baby puke or worse but most can be substituted for something cheaper and more robust - despite the claim that the yarns used are machine washable, they still need care in drying and shaping, and if you've a small baby in the house, who has the time?
If you want to make handknit clothes that don't look like 1950s throwbacks, this is a good book!

Was a bit disappointed with this book, I wanted patterns for garments not toys or pictures.Published on 22 Jan. 2015 by Pink
Fantastic range of patterns in this book. The only problem is you need to know whether you're knitting for a boy or a girl so not much fun if you like a surprise.Published on 12 Sept. 2013 by Lynda
