Out of the 70 patterns, I'll maybe do 15 or 20, so that isn't too bad. A lot of them can be used as templates for my own stitch patterns, which is always nice, and the more fanciful ones are simply fun to look at (the tiny holiday stockings for a dollhouse done at 1/32 scale!!!). My main complaint was that virtually all of the patterns are written for 4 DPNs, but I can get around it to use the 5 I'm used to. And since many of the patterns are charted, I don't have to do my usual rewrite it in my head routine to make things work for me (I'm a lefty knitter).

Overall, a good book and one I think I may come back to often.
