About the Author
GENEVIEVE MILLER was inspired to design her own patterns after reading Twilight. She is the mother of three and luckily married to a guy who doesn't mind the house being taken over by a giant yarn stash. She lives in Pasadena, California.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book and the different type of projects. True, there are only 2 sweater patterns (none of which are for a grown woman), but there are some beautiful scarves, mittens, socks, and a to-die-for lace shrug. There are quite a few lace projects, and a lot of red and black, which gives the overall style a sense of gothic Victorian. The photographs are absolutely mouthwatering, and the writing is cute and fun (even for non-Twilight fans), and I want to make most of the projects in this book. (But as another reviewer said, always check for errata before starting ANY project in ANY knitting book.)
Highly recommended as an interesting book to add to your pattern collection, IF vampire inspired / gothic knitting is your style.
Now I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. So naturally I had the Harry Potter Knitting book on pre order for nearly three months before it was released! BTW, also a great must have for knitters! So when I stumbled across this book, I thought, Hmm...... well, if I get one or two patterns I like it would be worth it, and I could knit up something for my Twilight Crazy friend!
Well not only are the patterns great, but they are highly flexible. If you changed the color scheme just a bit, it wouldn't be vampire inspired, so great for gifts for your non-vampire inspired friends. And some of the patterns are just so awesome! I can't wait to finish the Shapeshifter Shrug, which due to it's button placement you can wear different ways. There's a pattern for fingerless mitts with a wolf paw pattern on the palm, and I already have three friends lined up demanding a pair! And if you liked Bella's gray mittens in the movie and tried to buy them (EIGHTY BUCKS and DISCONTINUED by the store that carried them) have no fear, the pattern is in here to knit up your own.
So even if you don't like vampires, twilight, or werewolves, I still encourage you to add this book to your knitting arsenal. The patterns are flexible, fun, and quite trendy!
My first project was the Tourniquet Scarf, and now I have people asking me all the time to make one for them. It has a good variety of difficulty levels, a good selection of different projects, and I can hardly wait to make more projects from this book.
So whether you are into vampires or not give the book a try. You will be glad you did!
