This book has a nice mix of projects for both the big people and the little people for whom you knit. I espeically love the beautiful sweater on the cover. Another project I love is a fantastic cabled hoodie for the man in your life (or maybe to borrow back once it's knit!) There are several terrific patterns for the kids including the cabled heart shrug that I'm starting with. In case you don't want to commit to a sweater, some smaller projects are also included such as fingerless mitts, hats, shawl etc. Again, great attention to the pattern details show the yarn at its best. The directions are clear and concise. The photography is beautiful and I loved reading the history of the mills and producers of yarn in Ireland. You'll want to go there, but if you can't, this book will be a treat anyway! Love it.

Great book for anyone who loves Irish knits! Carol Feller not only produced beautiful designs, but gives a tour of three independent woolen mills in Ireland. She also introduces the reader to two yarn dyers and provides patterns for their products. This is definitely more than just a "how-to" book. It is sure to please anyone who loves knitting with natural fibers, Aran designs, and Ireland! Happy knitting!
