I was really excited when I read about this book as I love instant gratification knittng. The book arrived today and immediately sat with a cuppa and read cover to cover. And was very impressed, the projects vary and all seen easy patterns so perfect for beginners and lots of variety. The only problem with the book is once I put the kids to bed I excitedly picked a project, raided my stash and picked a project to knit, choosing the scarf on pg. 90 and as I was knitting I came across a lot of mistakes in the pattern. Luckily as Im already a knitter I was able to work around them but a beginner knitter would have prob got frustrated and gave up, and as a result of the mistakes the scarf took over an hr to make. So not sure what to expect from the rest of the patterns. Only time will tell.
