This book is beautifully laid out and lovely to page through and read, but its loveliness is one of its downfalls: The charts are printed in full color, without utilizing symbols to indicate yarn colors. Although this choice makes the charts pleasant to look at, the subtle differences between yarn colors are sometimes very hard to see in the charts, making working from them difficult. I spent too much time squinting at the latest chart, making little pencil dots on it to differentiate between LIGHT grey green and MEDIUM-LIGHT grey green!
I'll be proud of the resulting product, and will forgive Russell's editorial choice. Do consider buying this book, but be prepared for some challenges in using it.
*Honeysuckle (bell pull)
*Jasmine (with an alphabet to customize)
*Kazak (rug as well as bag w/ strap)
*Bird & Leaf
The designs really are beautiful and traditional, and I think it is going to make a wonderful addition to my needlepoint books.
