Reviews - What do customers think about Cover Up with Nicky Epstein: Knitted Afghans from her Personal Collection?
Art for the Home May 17, 2008
Nicky Epstein's afghans are works of art. Recent knitting trends present quick and easy projects which are usually uninspired. Her patterns require more time, but the end result is heirloom-quality, one-of-a-kind beauty that is timeless. The book itself is beautifully done, and it is a pleasure to curl up and dream of beginning your next project.

Inspiring - for the advanced knitter. A wonderful book, beautifully photographed. Nicky Epstein encourages me to break free, expand my skills and try something new.
A rich and vibrant book Dec 27, 2007
This book is beautifully presented, it's a work of art in it's own right. These afghans are for the serious knitter who's prepared to spend big bucks on their heirlooms. Having said that, the designs are quite spectacular and would be a challenge and a joy to knit. A friend commented that some of them looked a bit like they had been made on a knitting machine, which is true. Most of these designs are great, and the ones that aren't so great can easily be modified so they don't look quite so fussy. This is a lovely book, though for most of us it's a 'one day I'll make one' book.

Hats off to Nicky Epstein - or should I say covers off! This book is phenomenal. I collect knitting books and there are not many amongst the recent onslaught of books that I find add anything to the science and art of knitting. Nicky's books do. All of them in general and this one in particular are fantastic. She has a style and sense of color that is inspiring. Note: not all of the designs are new. I believe that at least one was in an issue of Vogue Knitting in the mid 90's. I do not consider that a minus. It is great to have all of her designs in one place so I don't have to tear up my magazine stash trying to find that one elusive issue.

This book is simply scrumptious and inspiring. Some of the best things are the full-page photographs of the afghans with no artsy staging or lighting, so you can really see what they look like.
