A treasure trove
, 23 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Knitter's Year (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Another knitting book on amazon Vine - lucky old me. And this didn't disappoint. So often I buy knitting magazines or books and only truly like a couple of patterns at most. As with the recent Erika Knight book, I found myself spoilt for choice. Loved the lace cushion, peg bag, tie on cushion, pencil case, knitting bag and the lacy scarf.
That said, there are quite a few fillers here. Flower pot covers, anyone? And, to be honest, I'm never going to knit a wash cloth - what's wrong with a flannel for those odd occasions when you need one? Nor was I quite convinced by the idea of knitting myself a bead necklace, beach flags, pan handler or a lacy shelf edging. Perhaps a bit too much striving to be innovative, but some lovely ideas and patterns overall, many suitable for using up oddments, and all displaying Bliss' usual flair for colour, texture and design.
