Not worth it
The designs in this book are absolutely beautiful, and the reason I purchased this book. However, anyone considering this book must know two very important things. 1. For nearly half the patterns (including, of course, those three or so that led me to purchase this book) the yarn is now discontinued. Now, normally this wouldn't be an issue. However, in at least one case, the yarn that is called for is not adequately substitutable. My difficulty in obtaining the yarn is leading me straight back to B&N tomorrow, to return this book. In reading other people's experiences with attempting to contact the yarn company, as well as the book publisher for substitutions, I have come to the conclusion that it's not worth the effort. Secondly, errata sheets are difficult to obtain, and apparently in great need for this particular title. I wish I had done my research before heading to the bookstore.
