Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Resource! From beginning knitter to advance artist knitter this book is worth its weight in gold. The photos are crisp, instructions clear, the volume of stitches unimaginable. An idea for this book is to do a square a day for the 400 stitches and put it together as an afghan. It would be gorgeous. Absolutely worth every penny.
