A podcast review from www.aplayfulday.blogspot.co.uk:



There are some fantastic designs in here, so many that I know that I'm going to use this book time and time and time again because all the designs are so different. There's a good range of yarns, there's a good range of different weights and different techniques, again it's a good learning book. I love that kind of knitting book, I find use it more, even if it's just to go and check techniques. I'm kind of learning that the books I invest in now need to offer me not just fantastic patterns, that's usually what you buy them for, but also something that you can use as a kind of reference guide. I'm really enjoying that aspect of it. So I thought what I'd do is, I'd share a few of my favourite designs. There are 25 and I could easily talk about all 25 because I don't think there's a design in here that I wouldn't knit, because they're all very wearable and very easy to follow as well.
