Recommends it for: Anyone who loves knitting....and traveling.
This is the first knitting book I ever checked out of our local library when I began knitting in back in 2010. I didn't want to buy it of course, just in case the knitting thing didn't work out. Well, it did work out (I am consumed by it now), and I finally bought my own copy of Knitting in Tuscany this week. I immediately read it cover to cover. Again. To this day, while I've actually never knit a Nicky Epstein design, I still think about this book. A lot.

I love this book. It is a source of in

Having just visited Tuscany in July 2014, I enjoyed the pictures and reminders of the lovely area. Although there was only one pattern I am thinking of making, I thought there were some great ideas in this book. I wish I had the list of stores when I was there, guess I'll have to go back!

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...

Gorgeous for knitters and travelers alike. Nicky Epstein is one of the few who really knows how to write practical and straightforward knitting instructions. This book had a wonderful layout and gorgeous photos making it one for your shelves not just for a library read

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.

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!
