Really Beautiful, WEARABLE Designs!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sensual Knits: Luxurious Yarns, Alluring Designs (Paperback)
Even if you aren't into the whole "luxury fibers" thing, even if you are a "non standard size", and even if your tastes run more classic and conservative than most, you will find MANY gorgeous items to knit in this book.
Classic, feminine, beautiful, wearable to work if one desires, functional designs fill the pages. There isn't a single item in here about which I thought, "hmmm - maybe if I were 20 years younger/20 pounds lighter/or 20 times hotter, I might wear that." And even my knitting daughter who IS younger lighter/hotter by factors of 20 found the designs gorgeous and desirable, too. THe layout of the book is lovely, patterns flow right from the gorgeous photos, and SO Much information is given, not only on yarn and needles and gauge, but also on what size was photographed, how much ease the piece was designed around, and so on, which will make choosing a size a snap, and a properly fitting garment the result of your time investment.
If you love beautiful knitwear design, you need this book. It's that simple.
