Whether or not I end up making any of the patterns in this book, I think its true value is in its first chapter: ten pages of practical advice on how to take your body measurements and adjust sweater patterns so that the finished sweater looks good on you, makes you look good, and fits.

Loved the beginning section on shapes and measuring. Great ideas on what to pair with different sizing. Most of the projects are very classic lines. What I didn't like was he are all pieced items. Would have liked something that was constructed in one piece.

Several intriguing designs, many of which I'll probably explore. Usual XRX encouragement of authorial solipsism, crap editing, and inexplicably ugly book design are evident throughout, however.

Some pretty patterns along with fitting tips.

This was a delightful book. I haven't connected with any of Sally Melvilles books before now, but this one really had a great combo between her and her daughters designs.

Liked it. There's a couple patterns in this I'd really like to knit (and luckily, I've the got the yarn to knit one of them).

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
