Patterns Missing Crucial Information Apr 28, 2004
I borrowed this book from our local library and was interested in the Teen Tank but was frustrated to find that the pattern omitted the quantity of yarn required. Considering that the yarn proposed is quite expensive, "guestimating" the required yarn is not a feasible option. Just glad I borrowed instead of bought this book.
Not Bad Apr 9, 2004
This book wasn't wonderful, but it wasn't terrible, either. Quite a few of the patterns were hideous-- as a teenager myself, I can assure you that no teen would wear the "Teen Tank", for instance. Also, most of the projects were knit in horrible colors. However, I liked the two scarf patterns, the mittens, and the sleeveless shell. I recommend getting this book from the library before you buy it.
Disappointing-Projects are not attractive Oct 25, 2003
I love the Vogue Knitting books but this one was a real disappointment. The projects may be quick and easy to knit up but they are clunky and not very appealing. I only found one project in this book that I would consider spending time making and that was the bag on the front cover. The rest of the book was basically useless.
Great for quick projects Jun 12, 2003
I just got this book a couple days ago and there are alot of great projects. Everything can be made in a short amount of time. You have at least one project for every member of the family at any age ranging from booties, a baby blanket, toddler clothes, a tank for your teenage girl, a sweater for the guy, and some great items for the 30ish old female - love the fringed cable belt. The yarns are a bit expensive, but it's so easy to sub another yarn. Everything is labeled either easy or intermediate, but more are on the easy side. I also have the Chunky Knits book, and will probably work from Weekend Knits more often.
