Unfortunately, many of the patterns seem either (a) like a great many other patterns you've seen lately, or (b) nice, but not particularly Celtic. I think the theory is that the colors used in the designs are supposed to have a Celtic 'mood,' but I just don't see it. Debbie Bliss' usual creative spark seems somewhat absent from this book.
The one pattern that really stands out is the Aran long-line tunic. This sweater, to me, at least, strikes a charming balance between traditional Aran knitting and a contemporary feel. The color, a sort of mauve-y rose, and the long shaping combine for a feminine, cuddly appeal.
With few other exceptions, the rest of the designs are unremarkable, if elegant and beautifully made. They would be perfectly at home under any title other than Celtic Knits. In sum, if you're looking for unique Aran and Fair Isle designs, there are better resources out there (e.g., Alice Starmore).
