    Hot as in color, not as in sexiness

    I like how everything is rated beginner - advanced. This book explains no techniques so you need to be able to cast on, knit, purl, bind off comfortable on straight and circular needles. There were a couple of tops I think I would make but when I think of casting on close to 200 stitches for a tube top, it makes me think twice about that project.

    Functional, stylish, accessible projects

    Beautifully designed knit projects, interesting twist on finishing (full-fashioned) which decreases post-knitting drudgery. Stylish designs, but most will not become dated. I'm about to knit Marla, so that means good for knitters at all levels.
