There is no better indicator of a craft's resurgence or ascendance than the number of new books devoted to the subject. And although knitting's revival has been in the works since the beginning of the millennium (if not before), this new innovative book signals a more sophisticated knitter in the making.Epstein never disappoints. Her retinue and reputation expand with every book, from Knitting Hats (1997) to this second command performance (given the phenomenal kudos for Knitting on the Edge). It is simple, really, in this ultimate collection of more than 350 different choices for ribs, cords, appliques, colors, and a type called nouveau. Document it via a color swatch, easy-to-understand directions, and stitch repetition information. Then practice it in a breathtaking handful of patterns, such as a knockout circus circle scarf to a showstopping cozy coat with fur-ball trim. What's next, Nicky? Barbara Jacobs

Original, inspired, highly artistic. It is truly a wonderful piece of art.
I wish to express my gratitude to the author who offered me/us this great joy that only a genuine, clever and sensitive artist can do.

After reading that, I thought I still preferred the third book as the patterns, especially those for imaginative sleeve borders and cardigan button borders, are much better, creative and stylish.
A bit dissapointed to have bought the second book, the section on colors, which covers more 50 pages are just simple instructions on color patterns - uninspiring and dull.
I would recommend those looking for inspirations and a different edge to buy the third book by the author.
