This one intimidates me... But I avoid other patterns that require the separate knitting of squares/shapes that you have to sew together - this book promises to do away with that sort of nonsense. Time to try it!
This book was well-thought-out and thorough. I personally didn't find many of the projects very compelling. Modular knitting is good for things that don't need a lot of shaping, like children's clothes. Someone said once that many of Elizabeth Zimmerman's designs are modular in essence, and this is true especially of her knits for children (like the Tomten jacket for instance). So I look forward to using the techniques I learned in this book when designing for children.
This is one of those books where the techniques described are really intriguing, but there were very few, if any, patterns that I actually could imagine myself knitting or wearing -- I would maybe consider some of the scarves, but that's about it. Modular knitting seems like it would be fun to do, but I've seen very few modularly knitted garments that I actually found attractive, and this book didn't do much to change my mind.
The techniques which Iris explains are very unusual and innovative. i learned how to do her multidirectional knitting.
It's a fun introduction to multi-directional knitting!
Interesting miter and color techniques.
Not ready to try any yet; may return.
