This book is filled with lovely patterns that aren't daunting. I plan to make the cover sweater as well as two of the cardigans. I enjoy collecting knitting magazines that inspire me, and this one does not disappoint.
Noro Silk Garden Sock is an amazingly easy yarn to knit, and the colors are stunning. I recently made a scarf with the yarn and am planning matching gloves. The yarn could be used for many other types of knitted items as well. The varying thickness yields a lovely texture.
