4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Kintwear, 25 Sept. 2007
This book really is good on the design front, however, as another reviewer points out there are errors in the patterns. Easy to spot if you are experienced but not if you are a beginner. So take your time and read pattern before you start, refer to photos as they are very good guides for shaping and pattern.

I took this book to my knitting club and everyone found something they wanted to knit, so it has wide appeal. I am loving my cardigan, its got lace and cables and looks fab as it is shaped at the waist. Used a different yarn but did a tension swatch and it came out to the same stitch gauge but I had to adjust the rows and do extra.

Well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watercolour trees -made easy, 27 Nov. 2005
This is a superb book for the beginner. Terry takes you through equipment, paper and paints in a clear manner, with colour photographs throughout.
The instruction on painting is done in clear easy steps, again photographed at each stage. I am a complete novice and have been able to produce excellent results.
I enjoyed the book so much I have booked to go on one of Terry's all-day courses.
