Loved the patterns. A wide variety of things I would actually make, many with a vintage feel. The author's literary references and pattern descriptions were fun to read, too!

Bizarre color choices for the mens' patterns. Pink variegated socks? A cabled sweater in cumparsita? The yarns really took away from the patterns rather than showcasing them.
