My only gripe is that some of the squares are repeated up to 5 times in different colours, so if you're expecting 200 different designs you may be disappointed.
On the plus side, I love that there are suggestions on how to put the squares together. I'll be scanning the sqaures and then cutting and pasting to make a patchwork design I like before I start knitting. (But then I love playing on my pc too!)
Each square also has suggestions of up to 3 other squares you could knit to form a larger project. Brilliant book!
