I'm probably one of the last knitters to get this book and I did, in fact, buy Borders' last copy of this gem. My advice is do not buy this book unless you have some dishcloth yarn and Euroflax sportweight linen on hand because there are some amazing projects you'll be itching to cast on while you're reading. The included patterns are original and adaptable for the flexible knitter; or you can stick with the pattern as written - it's all good!

It's a book for ALL knitters, not just knitbloggers. I initially thought it might read like a knitting insider's book, but it doesn't. While I found many projects I want to knit, this book has also given me license to be creative -- to play, experiment and USE my handknits!

There are also delightful interviews with The Queen of FInishing and Emma.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some knitting to do.

Great review! I wish I had thought to have some dishcloth yarn on hand. :)

I haven't bought the book. So you are not the last knitter to own it. :)

(Oh, I should add - I want to buy the book. I just haven't yet. April is "buy nothing" month after buying a new car!)
