This book offers a wide variety of things to knit up, from pillows to shrugs, to journal covers, you are sure to find something you'll like. I loved all the different yarns and textures they used. I saw 5 patterns that looked interesting and I'm going to store them in the back of my mind for later. I liked this book, it was bright, colorful and hip, you should check it out.

*Taken from my book reviews blog:
I was fairly unimpressed with this book. The patterns are, for the most part, not particularly attractive, nor are they all that original. Howell also has an inordinate fondness for novelty yarns, which results in a lot of projects that are either fugly now or will look completely dated in a year or two.

Good things: The layout of the book is really nice -- very clean and easy to follow. The instructions seem to be well-written, and the portions of the book that discuss various techniques are acc
Great looking patterns and easy to follow instructions. I can't wait to make the shrug and the garter stitch! They look really easy and simple to do.

I wouldn've probably enjoyed this more as a beginning knitter--or if I were a couple years younger (and I'm not real old here...I guess I just dress old-fashioned?).

It has the patterns from show and some of them are really fun. I picked it up so I could try out one that I just saw again.
