Some good info here, especially for beginning to intermediate knitters. A few of the patterns appeal to me, but not most.

It is difficult to describe this collection of knitting patterns with just a word or two because it is eclectic with yarns, colors and knitting levels from beginner to intermediate.

Patterns:
Scrubs, exfoliating washcloths - 24 sts x 30rows in pattern or 23 sts x 32 rows in pattern both on 3.5mm needles
Nana, bath mat - worked with 2 strands, 14 sts x 20 rows in pattern with 6.5mm needles
Georgetown, table runner but it could double as a scarf - 20 sts x 40 rows n garter st with 4mm needles (circ)

Recommends it for: knitter's looking to think differently about garment construction and their knitting in general
Shelves: knitting
The most interesting part of this book, which is absolutely GORGEOUS both in terms of projects and what the graphic design team did when constructing it, is that Mason uses Lion Brand. That's right, big hoity-toity knitting book ADVOCATING THE USE OF BUDGET FIBER. She also has this cool top construction that involves knitting a big rectangle, seaming it to make a tube, and having that be the bottom of her tops. How clever! I can't wait to stash bust with some of her ideas.

The concept of using color and texture to create interest was good, but I wasn't really grabbed by any of the projects. Also, the "XL" size was a 40 inch bust, which is really only about size 12-14, so any of the patterns would require a fair amount of reconstruction to be knit for someone who wears plus sizes.

Loved this. Lots of good ideas, and great encouragement for knitting creatively and venturing away from patterns. The author has an amazing sense of style and color.
