While this book has some very pretty projects, I was somewhat disappointed. When I got a closer look, I found that I probably would not want to knit many of the projects in the book as they were not flattering styles for my body type or for others I might knit for. But I realize this is a risk to take when purchasing any project. Look through all available photos first or see if you can find other projects by this designer before you buy a collection.
I was a bit surprised at the thinness of this yarn when I first received it because it's about the thickness of heavy sewing thread. However, the luster and hand make for a very pretty yarn. This yarn would probably be a nice blender or accent yarn for fingering weight yarns that need a little help or a project that you want to spice up.
