Chapters include projects for men, women, children, pets and charitable organizations. My favorite item of all in the book is her pattern for an infant-sized Reversible Hoodie. I don't even have a baby to knit for, but I'm going to make it anyway, it's that cute! And after that...there's the Diamond Rib Wrap for me. Can't wait to cast on.
The heart shawl is ridiculous and the Love Bag is way outdated..my opinion..
I would suggest people seriously look thru this book. Consider it for several options.
Some of the items are a little to crafty looking. The angel hats are sweet but probably not practical and the Heart wrap made me think of a construction paper project I participated in back in the 1st grade. However the vampire/werewolf hats are spot on with todays trends and the bad boy/lacy cuffed socks would be a fun gift to give/receive. The only true misfire I found in the whole book is the 'doggie-boobie' hat. I know those pouches are for ears but the poor thing does look like he's wearing a bra on his head. It's a big sad No!
Eclectic and fun, I know I will have fun making several of the items in here.
Ms. Epstein is known for her knitted embellishments and they are on display here in the Charitable Gift Afghan, the Ruched Mittens, and the Cable and Leaf tote for starters. The patterns are fresh and different and will make lovely gifts for some lucky people.
Disclosure: A review copy of this book was provided by the publisher.
This book is a great one for inspiration. I haven't yet followed directions for any of the designs, but at first glance they seem clear. Some of the funkier, artsier stuff will go out of fashion quickly (and some already have), but for the most part, the fancier patterns are timeless, and the children's patterns are fun.
In fact, pretty much the ONLY THING bugging me about this book is that the "Travelin' Man" example hats seem to have their colors reversed. Planes generally won't travel through a green sky.
A caveat: not for the casual knitter. Most projects require more than basic knitting knowledge. But this is a great opportunity to grow, if you have some good LYS help.
