I was very excited when I got this book given how lovely the garments looked but when I started knitting I was very dissapointed. There are so many mistakes - in the instructions, the stitch counts and even in the measurements on the schematics. I lost confidence very quickly. I have made a few of the garments from the book and I'm pleased with them overall, but I had to ignore the patterns and do my own calculations. The patterns are simple enough that this was possible, but a very big inconvenience and spoiled my enjoyment of knitting from this book.
Also, as other reviewers have said, it's very difficult to get the suggested yarns in the UK, and I had big problems getting substitutes in worsted weight.
