Well-put-together, good pictures and lots of instruction and information for all knitters, including a goodly lot of informative paragraphs about various yarns available and their differing textures and qualities. That part of the book is very good, but the patterns were so bland and stodgy that they simply bored me. None of them even tweaked my interest a bit, except for what she called a Spa coat, and the instructions for *that* were given in such an odd manner that it was next to impossible t ...more

Next time I would put in armhole and neck shaping. Then you'd have a good sweater. I do like the ribbing and the welt border. The ideas for beadin ...more

I've been looking to use up some of my stash, and lately I've realized that I could do it by making home decor. I've made a rug, and now, with some of these simple patterns (nothing too difficult, really)I will be adding some pretty throw pillows into the mix!

Seems to be a lot of cross over with Simple knits for easy living by same author.
