With so many general knitting and pattern books recently available, it's no surprise that the ever-enlarging market would expand to include more specialized guides. But what may be surprising is the fact that a book on a specialty topic like edgings could turn out to be as useful and lush as this one. Knitwear designer Epstein offers a reference book with instructions for 350 different edgings, everything from ruffles to laces and fringes to floras. The instructions are easy to follow, but it is the amazingly crisp photographs of the different edgings executed in colorful yarns and set against pure white backgrounds that will get knitters' hearts pounding. This book is so inviting and so easy to use (simple triangle symbols explain from which direction the patterns are knit) that knitters may find themselves edging projects already in progress.
