This might be a perfectly good book for many of you who buy it. I actually like a couple of the pictures, although I haven't bought this book and I probably won't. This is why...I don't expect authors (designers) to give instructions to all the patterns/projects in their books when they include one of the "Look Inside" options (in fact unless you include the amount of yarn that needs to be purchased and the sizes it comes in I don't want to read any instructions). I would, however, like to see pictures of all the projects when I am "Looking Inside." It just seems to be such a simple thing to do...infact, I would rather see photos of all the projects rather than the repeat of what every knit book has inside it "instructions for simple knitting stitches." As if I am going to buy a book that has instructions for knitting complicated projects and need to see the rudiments of knitting for the 100th time. I wanted to see a picture of the Kimono in this book and of course it was on page 31 or 32 and that is where the author decided to stop showing the book for 100 pages. Which is why I am writing. This isn't the first author who has done this.

Authors, if you are reading this you may want to change your ways and include photos of all the projects, leave out the simple knit stuff, include a video on you tube for the more complicated stitches (such as Staci from verypinkknits(dot)com does with her patterns and step off into the future. It may make the difference in whether you sell a book to someone like me or not. In this day and age I expect a big return for my investment and I am sure there are others who agree with me.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

This is a knitting pattern book that is rare in my extensive collection. Instead of two or three patterns I want to make, there are at least six. They are all doable for the beginning and intermediate knitter, and generally flattering on differnt types of figures.

I don't generally care for Newton's designs because she tends to favor oversized sweaters which are just not my thing. The patterns in this book on the other hand are right up my alley. They are for the most part fitted lacy sweaters. The picture on the cover is typical of the projects in the book. Most feature several different kinds of lace with a bit of cable thrown in. The patterns mostly call for cotton or cotton blends. If you like to use the exact yarn called for in the project, you will be happy to know that she uses widely available mid-priced yarns. The patterns mostly call for smooth cottons and blends primairly in dc and worsted weights that lend themselves to easy substitutions. All of the patterns are for adult women, plus one child and one male pattern. I can honestly say that I like every single pattern in the book and several of them are on must make soon list.

The book is not perfect though. There are in my opinion way to many cardigans - there are several twin sets - and not enough pullovers. It should also be noted that most of the garments are too open to be worn without something underneath. I also wish that she had offered more sizes. She only provides the standard XS-XL ranges (some patterns are only S-M_L). On top of the all of the sizes are in 4" increments which is way to large a gap for fitted garments made with plant materials that offers little give. My biggest disappointment though is that there are no charts, everything in written out long. Since many of the patterns require working several different panels of varying repeat lengths simultaneously, the lack of charts is a seriouse oversite.

Nice book of pretty patterns. Wish more of the patterns were in plus sizes. Will be knitting ones that are. Patterns include swaeters, scarves, shawls. Like the warm weather lighter weight clothing.

The entire book has lovely patterns to choose from. I knit the Kimono sweater in a lightweight
cotton and am quite pleased with the finished
project. Just the right length for an evening out
at a restaurant, or doing early morning shopping.

To me the title is misleading. A number of these sweater would also work well in the summer if done with a cotton yarn. The beauty of them need to be on show all year.

As a woman going through menopause, a light weight but still fashionable summer sweater is ideal. That's for giving those of us with ongoing "power surges" (as opposed to calling them "hot flashes") a fashion option.
