One thing worth noting, the first pattern I chose to make was the Sea Flower wrap with instructions that had some mistakes (not all that uncommon for needlework publications--oopses happen). I checked the author's site (dandoh . com / pattern-errata) and found the corrections and penned them into my book. Worked like a charm.
I bought materials for the "Floating Net" wrap, but I'm going to finish the shawl first. I like all the patterns, but the "Sand and Shells" and the "Pearl" would rank up there are difficult for me because I have such an aversion to making clothes because of the fit issue. However, I might be tempted to try these once I get one or two other projects under my belt.
I have to say that with most pattern books I end up shelving them without making anything, even if I think they're pretty. I bought this book and within a week I had started on a project from it, and that's saying something!
Update in April: finished Sea Turtle -- it is really unique. my sister looks amazing in it and bought more yarn in another color-way so I can make her another one! I've also started Bridges, which is kind of tricky so I have to think about it a lot. But I like how it's turning out.
About the Kindle edition: this was my first time using my Kindle for a crochet pattern -- I've resisted it in the past because other Kindle crochet books didn't work well and I had to keep returning them. But I like this one a lot. I can annotate the pattern (and I did look for errata on the author's website to add to my Kindle edition), magnify the page so I don't need reading glasses, and the book opens where I left off, like all good Kindle books.
this book is so exciting and the patterns are so lovely I really wan to do them all. I think you will love it.
6/11/2014 update. I finished sea turtles and I love it. I did allow a bit more room at the neck so it would have the off the shoulder look. It is a gift so the size will be good, but if I were to make it for myself I would add some rows as I am in the larger catagory. It was a very easy pattern to follow and I really love the way it hangs.
Though I have not yet tried to use any of the patterns, there are many useful and beautiful patterns in this book. Materials are a bit pricey, but they also will make quality items. I will probably make the cover item in Paton's Grace instead of the linen thread recommended.

So the patterns need converting before you use them. Haven't tried them yet, but the styles are modern and interesting. Suggest if you buy it, you get a conversion chart from the internet.
