    beautiful projects for warm weather

    This book has several great patterns for summer wear. It's well laid out and lots of beautiful photos. I also like it that the models aren't all super skinny teenagers. They actually look like real women!

    looks promising

    I'm currently working on the Bordeaux shawl and it looks awesome. The pattern is straight forward and accurate. I'm looking forward to knitting many of the other patterns.
