I can't say enough about how beautiful the projects are. There are hats, mittens and socks to die for. The colors and patterns are extraordinarily beautiful. I don't know which pattern to tackle first. Looking through this book when I'm feeling a little manic, I think I'll try them all.
The three tweedy scarves are beautiful and reminiscent of shadow knitting. The hat in variegated yarns looks like a beautiful stained glass window. The traditional textured hat in off-whit looks thick and warm, something to wear in the Alaskan winter. The traditional Swedish Sail Hat in black, white and red will be one of the first projects I undertake. It is stunning. The frosty morning mittens remind me of Latvian mittens with cuffs. The multi-colored pattern with a black background is gorgeous. The green striped mittens look warm and any knitter would be proud to say they'd made them. The traditional mittens in an off-white color have a celtic/aran feel to them. I'm perusing my stash and also planning an outing to my local knitting store. Meanwhile, I'm looking at this book over and over because of the beautiful patterns, along with trying to learn the technique of twined knitting.
When I buy a knitting book I ask myself three questions.
1) Does this book contain patterns that I like and that I'm likely to knit?
2) Are the patterns clear?
3) Is the book a good resource?
The answer to all three questions is a resounding yes.
I would buy this book if for no other reason than inspiration. It is a book to look at again and again and envision making so many of the beautiful projects it contains.
