For instance, an adorable cabled sweater has tabs dangling around the hem and the cuffs, charming, but sure to get yucky in the kitchen, so I'd leave off the cuff tabs or maybe just shorten them. All her designs come with suggestions for customizing,and that's one of the things I love about this book. Or knit them as is. The cover sweater keeps growing on me. I want it! But I'll.probably never make it, though I might steal the lattice pattern or Fair Isle pattern to incorporate in her On the Block Topper, a capelet made of four squares with optional neck treatments. Simple and so very clever. It's going to be all over the internet this fall.
So get this book, follow her instructions, adapt them,, or use her patterns as an inspirational springboard for your own creations. Wouldn't one panel from her first lacy shawl make a great table runner?
This book has things in it which inspire me and make me want to knit. The designs are interesting, seem to work well on small or larger people (a BIG plus) and would be easy to work with store yarn, hand dyed yarn, or handspun yarn as well. I really enjoy this book and it is in the part of my collection for MUST make instead of a coffee table book or a book which I look at occasionally but never do anything with.
I would say that this book would appeal to people who like to make very unusual but wearable things, but would not appeal to traditional knitters or those who prefer not to stand out in the crowd with Avant-garde style but prefer to make more classic things with different yarns.
