I can't help but keep buying every Kim Hargreaves book--i wish I could say I knit something out of every one, but even if that's not the case they are beautiful and inspirational with classic designs that should stand the test of time.
I haven't knitted anything from this yet but there are at least 3 patterns if not more that I want to knit from this book. Will have to find substitute yarns however since I don't like Rowan's All Seasons Cotton 2 patterns I like call for it. the various patterns use it as well as cotton Glace, Pima Cotton, Sienna, Handknit cotton,kid silk haze, & Lenpur Linen.and I might have missed a couple
There is crochet as well as knit. I may do a couple in a cotton yarn, but I think for the beautiful cardigan I will use a wool/cotton blend. Kim Hargreaves outdid herself with this one and well worth the price.
Like many, I have about 12 pages of projects in Queue on Ravelry, just waiting to be knitted. Unlike back when I was new to knitting, now I'm more selective about pattern books I buy because I know that realistically, I can't knit everything I see.
So it took me almost a month of contemplation until I finally decided to purchase this book. As usual, JBW delivered it to be within 3 days. And I opened it up to find the most beautiful, classy, elegant designs by Kim Hargreaves. I love this book and cannot wait to cast on everything.
