It's not that scarves aren't wonderful things -- but making one of big yarn isn't necessarily a burst of creativity. It's the kind of thing you do with a troup of first time knitting scouts. Between the scarves and the iPod and phone sweaters, 25% of the book is gone.
Which seems a bit on the thin side for the price. -- like the models.
One improvement over "Big City..." is that more of the patterns are worked up in Med. and Large sizes, instead of just Small, Skinny, and Extra-Emaciated.
Final thoughts -- this is more of the "write fast, there's a lot of knitters out there; we want to sell books..." school of publishing. I think they should have waited for a few more bursts of inspiration and given us our money's worth. Interesting photography is just not enough.
i agree with the first commenter that alot of the patterns are scarfs in this book, however it's called "weekend knits" for that very reason.... scarves knit quite quickly--sweaters take a bit longer.
i like how chia indicated clearly that sizes should be taken based on measured size, not finished size of project. it makes the sizing much clearer.
i also like the small format of the book. it's much easier to tote around to yarn stores and knitting circles than the huge format of "big city knits".
one comment that they could work on would be to have more pictures of the finished product, from more angles on and off the models. and it would be nicer if the picture alongside the pattern was blown up a bit larger.
overall it's a beautiful, fun book with nice ideas for all types of knitters.
i was able to find 8 skeins of twinkle yarn, in 4 different colors, to make the borealis sweater in size small.it wasn't the exact colors i wanted, but they rurned out nice, i used baby pink, dusty rose, riviera, and rain. i am normally a 0-4, so the small fit fine. it knit up quite quickly. i actually had 2 skeins of yarn left over, because i only had one of the rain color, i made the rain bands narrower.Read more ›
I enjoyed seeing designs I recognized from her previous collections and am thrilled she included some designs from more recent collections too (Urchin Beret)! My favorite is the Northern Cross Sweater (intarsia cross). I've already made so many of those Sand Dune hanger covers for my closet!
