Format: Paperback
It's hard for me to pick a favorite from this collection of absolutely adorable outfits, but I guess it would be the cable and lace onesie. Or is it the teeny tiny pink ballet slippers...or the ruffled dress with pockets
on the rear? Also included are a couple of afghans and a few toys. But it is the fashions that really grabbed me.

This is a book for a knitter with some experience, as the beauty of many of the designs lies in the interesting and complex stitch patterns.

I found only one negative, which Is why I didn't give it five stars. The book, an import from England, uses
entirely Rowan yarns. Although these are available in the US, they may be hard to find and a bit costly. Sadly the English apparently have not yet adopted our US yarn standards for yarn weights, so making substitutions is not easy. You'll have to do quite a bit of gauge swatching if you want to make yarn substitions. But then, a good knitter always makes a gauge swatch anyway, right?

There are indeed lovely designs. I bought the book upon seeing the pretty little ruffled dress with pockets and it was the first project I tried.

All the yarns used in the book are from Rowan, and not available for me anywhere except online. I really prefer not buying yarn without being able to see and touch it, but I've been careful over the years to keep detailed notes on what yarns I have tried and how the gauges work with different needles, so I had a fairly easy time finding a local yarn I could use.

I think that if a manufacturer intends to sell an English book in an American market, they should at the very least include more information about needle and yarn gauges. At best, list some suggested substitutions. I fault the book for this lack.

Now the patterns. I found a number of sizing and numerical errors. While knitting the back of the dress, I encountered several errors which made it necessary to tear the piece apart and reknit from my own calculations. Not insurmountable, but a loss of time and much stress on a stretchy cotton yarn. I was able to finish the dress, although by the time I corrected the errors and did a little extra fixing up to neaten here and there, it's more of a riff on the design than a copy. Next I tried a onesie and made sure to read through and graph out any sizing bits. Found more errors, and eventually rewrote the pattern before actually working it. It turned out beautifully as well, and I do think the other designs are beautiful, but I really don't buy knitting books expecting to do all this paperwork before making something.

Very dissappointed in the editing of patterns. I strongly recommend taking the time to read through and meticulously check instructions before making anything.

Format: Paperback
Although the designs in this book are lovely, I found the patterns to be poorly edited. There are mathematical mistakes in the stitch counts which would lead to great confusion in a less experienced knitter. In some of the patterns (like the teddy suit) I had to go so far as to design my own mittens and footies. It was fairly frustrating to get three quarters of the way through a project only to find that it doesn't work as written.

I have only just started my first project from this book, but like it very much. The patterns are very cute, I can hardly wait to finish this project so I can start another one. It was helpful being able to look inside of the book and see the designs before I purchased the book. The instructions are very easy to read, and I especially like the complete information on the yarns that are used in the projects. I would highly recommend this book.
