So I'm slowly buying the Interweave collection of knitting pattern books.
This is yet another that was pretty cheap as a good used book so I took a chance.
About half of the patterns are interesting, but this is mostly sweaters and cardigans with personal touches which stay deeply in the classic with class where too many of the new knitting pattern books are delving too far into the kitsch.
I'm planning to whip up the cover sweater called Intagliata Henley which needs for a 94cm bust, 4 skeins for
Disclaimer, the tribe of women with PhDs in Physics is quite small and I know Connie personally.

I bought her book and was very impressed. The photo previews on the publisher's website don't do the book justice. Yes, there are nice and wearable projects for real life. Yes, they combine interesting textured detailing with quick and easy stockinette so that the projects can be finished in realistic time frames. Yes, the sweaters are beautifully photographed to show off the yummy yarn.

A library book I more then likely will be purchasing. I am a big fan of cardigans and Connie Chang Chinchio designs in this book are fabulous. What I love about the first two cardigans, Professoressa and the Lustro are the texture/cables going up the front. No buttons this is the way I love wearing a cardigan.
This book had some nice looking patterns. I can't knit yet, but I liked at least half of these patterns. When I eventually tackle knitting my first piece of clothing, I'll remember this book.
I love Interweave publications. The styling makes all the finished pieces look so effortless - I just want to knit everything.

Love Connie choice in details. Nothing too fussy or overworked :)
I loved these sweaters and other knitted items. The sweater I knitted fits extremely well and is gorgeous. I hope to also knit a hat and gloves as well as possibly more sweaters.
Lovely book design, like all Interweave books, but the only pattern that really caught my eye was the Intagliata Henley (shown on the cover).
Some patterns I like and would want to knit. Simple lines but with cables, lace, and other patterns, the knits are more interesting.
Patterns are simple and complex. I may buy this book to learn how to transfer the textured stitches to dog sweaters.
