This a great book for making gifts for friends or presents for yourself. They are very classy, stylish, practical designs that are timeless and will work in anyone's home. The photos are beautiful and the products end up just like the photos. Very easy instructions to follow for the beginner and fun for advanced knitters because they are quick projects. I bought two extra books as gifts.
The photos are great and if you can figure out the patterns yourself or are looking for some photos for inspiration, get the book. Otherwise you will likely have a hard time finding the yarn and/or following the instructions for the various patterns. Bottom line: if you want a photo book for inspiration AND can modify instructions to make your own pattern, get this book.
