MY REVIEW -
Excellent book! There are so many great patterns (101 to be exact! LOL). I do have to warn you - there are a few easier patterns for beginners, but most of them are for more experienced knitters. This is exactly the kind of pattern book I  love. I am an experienced (maybe even advanced) knitter and I get bored with simple patterns. I loved that there were lots of challenging ones in here. To be honest there were only a small few that I didn't care for. Most of them are very beautiful and definitely ones that I would knit.

There is also a nice variety - 12 hats, 9 gloves & mits, 7 socks, 11 for baby, 5 blankies, 19 scarves, 9 cowls, 15 shawls, 8 accessories, 7 for the home. Lets see, is that 101? Gasp! that's 102! See you get an extra!

Here's a few pics off my ipad -



Aren't they all so beautiful? If you would like to try some of this gorgeous knitting, or give the book as a gift! You might get a knitted item in return!
