    Time to Get Out of Your Box!!

    While this book is not for every knitter, it is the perfect book for those who want to "get out of their box" and learn a different knitting technique! I haven't seen any other book on the market like this. The illustrations are fantastic; one can look at the schematics and truly visualize how the garment is supposed to look and how the technique "works" for each design. The section on understanding pleat knitting is well written and really helps to be able to read through before tackling an actual project. Only thing I would like to see would be yardages listed as many of the yarns used are not readily available throughout the U.S. It would be nice to have a more accurate idea of required yardage.
