From the photos it is clear that the designs are very interesting and the colors are wonderful. But what really impressed me from seeing the actual garments on real people is how well the shape and fit were designed as well, qualities that are not as obvious in the flat model photos in the book.
Run, don't walk to get this book!
This is another wonderful book from Knitter's! Alexis Xenakis's photography is excellent as usual, and the editors from Knitters are meticulous with everything from the graphs to their instructions. They have thought of everything.
The colors and patterns are spectacular. All are wearable and there are choices from conservative colors to bolder colors. Clearly, a great deal of time was spent in this book.
The designer goes beyond just the design but has something for all levels of knitters.
For beginners, the book walks you through the building blocks of each design. For the power no-holds-barred knitters like myself, the patterns and colors are organized so that they can be used as a springboard for going beyond what is presented. Knitters' also has a website for people to play with color choices.
Would I make and wear any of these items? Absolutely! I immediately found some items that I do plan to make.
As I went through this book, I wanted to run away to a desert island with this book, needles and two crates of yarn and do nothing for a year but play with the designs.
What if you are not a knitter? The book is worthwhile just for the photography itself and would be a wonderful coffee table book! Need I say more?
Thank you, Jane Slicer-Smith!
I am thrilled to have this book in my knitting library, but realistic that to attack any of these projects would be expensive and more than anything, very lengthy to finish. But it certainly lures my interest levels.
On a scale of 1-10 I'd rank this book a definite 8, not any higher merely because of the magnitude of each project. I'm a long time knitter but most of these projects suggest skilled & masterful abilities.
