    Immediately Felt Inspired

    I checked this book out of our local library and immediately fell in love with it. I'm a beginner to intermediate knitter and found this book fairly simple to understand and not too complicated.

    I love the little feminine touches that beading, buttons and buckles added to these pieces. There are 24 different patterns and I liked most of them, and went and immediately bought the materials for a few of them. Everything has a very feminine, romantic touch. I'm in love with the braided cable belt and the teak bittersweet gauntlets.

    After reading this book, I decided I had to run out to our local B&N to buy it because I had to add it to my collection of inspiring books. I plan on using this book repeatedly to make gifts for my friends or when I feel the need to make something girly for myself.

    Fabulous Hat Designs

    I loved seeing the photos of the hats and reading about how you can interchange yarns. I am an intermediate knitter and was able to follow the insturctions fairly well and the gift giving was enthusiasticly accepted.
