Recommends it for: experienced knitters
What a treasure this book is, IF you are an expert knitter and have a great deal of patience! (grin) And if you want a real challenge...

Filled with enormously beautiful pictures of simply superbly designed knitted afghans, most with extremely complicated intarsia work and/or knitted and/or embroidered embellishments, this large book would be a terrific addition to any truly serious knitter's library. And if you're not an experienced knitter as yet, would recommend purchasing this to give you som
Wanted to look at for the fun of it, not looking for blanket patterns to knit.

Nicky Epstein is one of the most prolific knitting designers today. It seems that every time I pick up a knitting magazine, she has released another book.

I just joined a Crafter's book club, and I took this as one of my "thanks for joining" selections. The afghans are all beautiful and are nearly all, at least for now, way out of my league.

I don't know that I'll ever be proficient enough to knit an afghan from this book, but it's photographed beautifully and makes for a good wish book.
If I set out to work on a yarn project this difficult, I don't want it to look like anything in this book. I've spent a lot of time looking at this book at the bookstore, but I doubt I'll ever buy it. I have a great deal of respect for anyone who can invent such intricate patterns, but almost all of the ones in this book are way too garish and/or fussy for me.

These are pretty, but too many of the patterns are just intarisa, which are very pretty, but not something I'd knit.

I didn't find anything in this book that I wanted to knit.
