Bad investment Mar 22, 2006
I was attracted to the hat and scarf on the cover. When I opened the book, I was even more impressed with the fun look of the items. Boy, am I sorry I bought this book! I don't know if all the patterns are as bad as the one I tried because I haven't looked closely. You name it -- this pattern has everything wrong with it. It says decrease instead of increase and knit instead of purl. It leaves out instructions. It is overly complicated and ill-conceived. I can't figure out how this book went to press.
Not for the Beginner Jan 23, 2005
I got this book on the misguided notion that the chunky projects would be more beginner oriented. However, most projects require intermediate skill. There seems to be quite a lot of cabled hats and scarves here. The beginner level projects are things you can probably figure out on your own. There is one beginner level hat (on the cover) that looks interesting and I may make it soon. There are also these adorable baby hats (Ice Princess) with furry cuffs. I'd like to do something like that in adult sizes. The Water Lilies scarf is beautiful and is on my to-do list. The On the Fringe scarf may actually have some merit, but the color choices shown are soooo amazingly unfortunate, it's hard to get past the hideous-ness of it to see. All in all, I think the basics of a lot of these projects are in books you probably already own. But it's worth having if you can find a good sale price.
