Ever have some great yarn, and a vague idea of something you'd like to make with it, but the stitch evades you? It's in here. Clear pictures, great directions, it's like chocolate for the knitter's brain!
If you could only take ONE knitting book with you to a desert island (although I hope the island would have some cooler weather so you could wear the fruits of your labors), it should be this. (If you could take two books, then grab the Second Treasury). Ms Walker's instructions are clear, concise, and encouraging. Why do "plain st st" when you have all of these CHOICES?
