The thought, energy and vision which went in to the making of the book is evident at every level; from the selection of hand dyed yarns to the convenient 'lay-flat' spiral binding.

This is a comprehensive book with amazing photos and illustrations. Well-written and thoughtfully laid out format. Effectively establishes the basics and enables you to move onto the next level at your own pace. I've purchased a number of different knitting books and this is the one that I recommend to my friends.
