Beautiful and practical knits from Elsbeth Lavold's 2nd Viking venture 5 out of 5 stars
Happily, we have a second opportunity to drool over patterns using Viking symbols and artwork. Patterns call for Elsbeth Lavold yarns: ClassicAl, Cotten Patine, Hempathy, Silky Tweed, Silky Wool, and Silky Cashmere. The designs are pretty, practical, and accurately-labeled as to difficulty of project. Sizing is generally S/M/L/XL, a few give 2X, though S and XL were sporatically omitted. No directions give XS. Standard children and baby sizes are used. Practicality is addressed--these are not one-wearing designs. The garments you make will become a matter of pride and great usefulness.

Knit away into lovliness and history with Elsbeth Lavold 5 out of 5 stars
This book will stimulate your desire to make all patterns given. The designs are pretty, practical, and accurately-labeled as to difficulty of project. The patterns are designed to fit real women, allowing for hip-room and comfortable movement. Most women's are sized S/M/L/XL 2 give an XS size, and a male and a female pattern offers a 2X while standard children sizing is used. All are knitted of Silky Wool dk, a yummy Elsbeth Lavold Designer yarn. An almost unconscious history lesson is given, showing designs taken from the few-known bits of Viking artwork. Once completed, you will be wearing a bit of Viking and your own personal history!

Review of Elsbeth Lavold's 2nd Viking Knits Collection 5 out of 5 stars
What beautiful articles of clothing! These are designed to be kind to those of us who are not endowed with a model's figure. They accurately reflect historically documented Viking designs. And the directions are well-written, and understandable. Good One!

Noro - Taiyo
Taiyo yarn is wonderful! 5 out of 5 stars
Taiyo yarn is colorful and pretty, easy to handle, and looks great in the finished garmet. It goes where you tell it to--makes a waist, make nice big hips. Colors can be used as they come off the skein, or can be separated by color--with their position in the color scheme of the garmet determined by the knitter. Enjoy!
