I am an avid knitter. After borrowing this book from my local library, I knew I just had to have it!
I found it on Amazon by a private seller. It came very fast, in mint condition.

If you've heard of Vickie Howell, you will recognize the style throughout the book. :) Fun and Cool! Very modern.

This book is really nicely presented, has some great designs with excellent instructions, and clever titles - e.g. 'Tie-Phoon' for a knitted tie, and 'Save the Tees' for making a sort of hamper out of old tee-shirts.

Sadly, this book makes me feel a little inadequate. But no, I mustn't think that - after all, to quote Eleanor Roosevelt: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." Hmm, let me put my feelings a little differently then - there are times when I wish I had the energy and the dollars to be so absolutely and thoroughly eco-conscious as the authors of this book are.

No regrets, Kathleen! And after all, I'm good at adapting. I have scanned a few pages of this library book because I'm fascinated by the idea of using plastic bag strips for crochet, and I'm all into recycling, and there's a gorgeous little knitted, smocked dress which I might make for my granddaughter.

For someone who has the money to purchase these yarns (or the determination to use nothing else), this book is amazing. You can knit a lovely blanket out of 100% certified organic wool, make a cape out of a yarn that is 70% bamboo and 30% silk, make a sleeveless cardigan out of a yarn that is 29% soysilk ... I never knew such things existed, so for this alone I have enjoyed this book.

This book does exactly what it says it's going to. Excellent.

More than just new cute and trendy patterns. Fun and educational about yarns, help you navigate threw expensive options and know what you are buying is benefiting more than just your finished product. Great little tid-bits to add to cards when gifting a home made item.

Has anyone actually knitted etc anything from the patterns in ths book? I loved the cardigan neutral pattern, spent a lot of money on the wool, adjusted to fit with the tension square but it is still not correct. I've had to rip out huge amounts of knitting (whole of the back panel) but love the pattern so I'm giving it another go. But, not good?
