Iris does it again!,
This review is from: Iris Schreier's Reversible Knits: Creative Techniques for Knitting Both Sides Right (Hardcover)
Iris Schreier is a genius at designing beautiful knits that look complex, but are really very enjoyable and easy to knit, once you wrap your brain around them. I've been working on the Sorbet Shawl for the past week, a lacy design that is a relaxing knit, once you set up the first few rows. You can look at your knitting, rather than having to refer to a chart or text. In fact, every time I work another one of Schreier's designs, I feel that I'm a smarter knitter, learning to recognize or "read" what I've knit.
The book is lovely to look at, well-organized, and has a wide variety of techniques to challenge any level of knitter. I'm planning to try one of the double-knitting projects next. Iris designs with her own beautiful Artyarns in mind, but offers a chart for substitutions if you want to try something else.
This book is another must-have for me, as I learn so much from Iris, and am inspired by her lovely designs. If you haven't checked out her other books, you must--they're great, too.
