This is a collection of knits that push the boundaries of what you can do with yarn and some needles.... I loved the variety, and the textures that Alpert has managed to produce with this collection.

While I would not wear all of them, they are a delightful collection, sure to inspire any knitter.

I would buy this book and can imagine knitting my way thru this book. Tanya Albert has a nice sense of design and she uses Habu Textile yarns, my favorite yarn boutique.

Haiku knits by Tanya Alpert. I took this lovely book out from the library. There are several projects that I would like to make, in particular a lace scarf.

Beautiful unusual garments made with beautiful yarns. But nothing that I would make for myself.
