I looked up Simple Knits with a Twist because I wanted to sell my copy and wanted to see what the reviews looked like. I am surprised to see how many people commented that the book was attractive, but had impractical projects.
I disagree. I think the images are a little flat. I find good photography to be inspiring in itself, and good projects as well, especially with attractive materials. I find that the book lacks both of these things.
Some of the projects are kinda cute. There's a dog sweater with a bar code pattern, and knitting combined with woven fabric for a throw, and a knitted wire fruit basket, but these still failed to inspire.
I think that better photography, better styling, and fewer close up photos of balls of yarn (instead of more close-up technique images) would serve this book well.
If this were a more practical OR attractive book, I might not be so eager to unload it.
I haven't tried many of the projects in this book but have tried knitting with wire. It's a challenging media but makes for an interesting fabric. Again, the author helps inspire you to think of knitting in a different way.
The instructions for new knitters are kind of confusing and as a new knitter myself it is a little frustrating but I had never thought of using my knitting in such unique ways. When I get bored with the usual projects, I take this book out to get my creative juices flowing. This book is a keeper.
