The book's theme is expressed in double-page display pages for "A.M.", "P.M.", and "Weekend". For example, the layout for "A.M." suggests that the knitter "sneak in a few rows --before breakfast . . . --while coffee brews . . . --on the subway . . . --while computer warms up . . ." and so forth. None of the suggestions seem particularly original or useful, as most busy but serious knitters will have thought of these things already.
In keeping with the theme, nearly all of the patterns are for "portable" projects: colorwork mittens, scarves, twisted-stitch-pattern socks, mitts, hats, an oversize shrug, a stole, a shawl, a purse, a market bag, a pillow, a bookmark, and slippers. However, it is questionable whether a project that requires a chart is actually a "portable" project, and whether such a project can be knit successfully when the knitter is "sneaking in a few rows" while standing in line or waiting for coffee to brew. Thus the theme seems forced--simply an excuse to present yet another collection of accessory patterns as something new or different.
Having misunderstood the title of the book (which I ordered sight unseen because I generally love Veronik Avery's designs), I was particularly disappointed to find that the book includes only four garment projects: a skirt, a "grandfather vest", a mesh tank, and an "elemental pullover". The "elemental pullover" is far and away my favorite pattern.Read more ›
I realize that I can jump around using the location gauge, but you really can't do that very precisely like you could do if you had the actual book. So you have to get as close as you can and then page forward and back until you get to the next pattern. It's extremely irritating. Obviously, no one wasted much time trying to get this book optimized for a kindle. I know once I find the pattern, I can bookmark it. But why should I have to create my own table of contents?? It can't be that hard to just put in an index before you put it up for sale, right? Or included a list of the patterns in each section on the first page of each section??

These patterns are not easy, on the go, projects. They are complicated stitch patterns that one is supposed to do while waiting on the bus! Really?? Returned it to Amazon.Published 3 months ago by Pameladen
I paged through the book and liked almost all the patterns. Exactly what was promoted, small attractive wearable projects that are easy to take along almost anywhere.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
Although it's obvious that a lot of work went into this pattern collection and book, I don't think it is in keeping with the title at all. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Geraldine

Not a fan of the patterns or the explanation for the techniques. The Kindle layout isn't the best either, even after adjusting and trying a couple devicesPublished on April 19, 2014 by Burgundy47
