I usually like Nicky Epstein, she's an interesting designer. Works outside the box. I couldn't have been more disappointed in this book- not a single pattern interested me. Not even for it's idea. While I believe she intended this book more as a knitter's guide to Tuscany, it was not even well organized...
Most of the projects in this book fall under the category of "Just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD." The one valuable part of this book for me was the list of Tuscan yarn shops; I wish I'd had it when *I* was in Tuscany in 2006!!
The book is mostly travelogue, with a few patterns inspired by Tuscan scenes thrown in. Nicky Epstein also points out the yarn stores that shouldn't be missed...
Fascinating look at Tuscany from a knitter's point of view. I enjoyed the history, the intriguing patterns and the great tourist information. Fun read.
amazing! a travel guide and a knitting inspiration all in one! the patterns are absolutely gorgeous!

Well, if you like intarsia, you'll love this book. Unfortunately, I am not a fan
Nice book in terms of the touristy bits, but the patterns kind of stink.
This book has 12 gorgeous patterns and I want to knit them all!
Wonderful patterns
