The patterns in this book are pretty, but nothing that I choose to knit. The central idea in this collection is to "let the yarn do the work."

Good instruction on working with color. Of Sally's Knitting Series books, this one is the best. Her other two (Knit Stitch, and Purl Stitch) could easily be covered by getting the big Vogue Knitting book, but this one really excels at explaining how to add color to your knitting.
This is the third book in the series and it was even better than the first two. I read this book for knitting information even if I am not knitting a pattern from it. Sally Melville is a terrific teacher.
This series is a wonderful tutor for new knitters, and a great refresher for old. I'm an old knitter, but I don't work with color much, so this book was great as a how-to, if not for the patterns.

Many of the patterns are unwearable. I have had this book for several years but have never made anything! I loved her first two books but this one didn't quite make the cut.
This was my least favorite in her series. Not that informative, either in technique or theory, and the patterns are not appealing to me.

This is the space where you are to hear about me, Sally Melville—knitting designer / teacher / author. These spaces are usually written by people other than the person who is written about—for objectivity and all that good stuff. But I suspect what you’d then get is my story as told from the end and with all its ‘high points.’ And I don’t think that’s either inspiring or particularly truthful. Bec...more
