A little bit of luxury,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knitting Lingerie Style: More Than 30 Basic and Lingerie-inspired Designs (Hardcover)
I have to say that after reading all the reviews on this book, and a few others on amazon, it was a bit of a leap of faith for me to buy it because I really wasn't sure whether it would be worth it. Fortunately I wasn't disappointed, as it is a lovely book. I haven't tried any of the patterns yet, so I don't know how 'knittable' they are yet, but from the outset there are some lovely designs. It is an american book, but I have recently discovered the wonderful ravelry.com, so you can look up the yarns and work out what ply they are making it easier to substitute them. I was slightly disappointed there is only one bra pattern, but having said that it is a very nice bra, and I get the sense that I could have a lot of fun adapting and really making these patterns my own. As mentioned in some other reviews there are plenty of camisole tops and even skirts which would look lovely as outerwear, and I really love the lacy socks too. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase, although I haven't knitted anything yet there are plenty of patterns here I can't wait to try.
