I like the use of yarns and the conservative men's patterns. On showing the one shawl collared sweater to my husband, he said: "hey, I'd wear that!" which is a first in 20 years.
I didn't need wrist warmer or corset cover patterns but there was enough here that I can ignore those. I'd prefer some clearer photos, esp of the second "under" layer of the 2 layered sweater. I hate not being able to clearly see every design.
All in all, a hit.
I will be busy for months knitting from this book. The challenge will be affording all the yarn! There are several creative patterns to choose from; my favorites being The Military Jacket on page 68, The Beaded Pulse Warmers on page 78, Ski Jacket on page 112, Warm Shawl page 86, and the Layered Skater's Top beginning on page 116. There are also several designs for men and children.
If you're a member of Ravelry you can either type in the pattern titles I mentioned, or search by the author, Veronik Avery, to see the designs in this book. You can then decide for yourself. Winter is approaching... happy knitting everyone!
This book does not showcase all the elements that I have come to admire in Avery's work. Nothing inspired me to pick up the needles and cast on. There didn't appear anything truly innovative. Many of the patterns were done in a large yarn and needle gauge, so that they appeared coarse to me, though others may find that the interesting part. For me, I wish I had had the chance to see the book first, because there is nothing in here that interests me at all. The texture work was coarse, and so was the color work. Everything meant for those who might have shorter attention spans, but nothing that seems elegant, as so much of Avery's work has been in the past.
