    NOT A SINGLE DISAPPOINMENT UNDER THESE COVERS...

    THIS BOOK IS WONDERFUL! if you want to knit for yourself or for young family & friends, then this is a great book to buy! many 'old school' knitters may gasp for air at the name of the book, but the patterns are beautiful and to die for! every single one could be knit exactly the way the pattern calls or exchange yarns for a custom look... it's endles, and the patterns are written like you're having a converstation, so they're easy to read & understand. everything is laid out well, in plain english, and if you are not cool before you started, you will be after you wear these! i've gotten only good responses by people of all ages from my 4yr old twin boys, to 'senior' citizens who walk by and catch me reading... YOU NEED THIS BOOK!
