Book Review #303
Romanic Hand Knits by Annie Modesitt
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I couldn't help but admire the way this book was put together, the photographs were vividly bright and I loved all the colors. This book is very hip and I thought that the way it was set up on the pages was refreshing. I found several of the patterns quite fetching and wanted to start knitting right away, but I'm going to save this book for future reference until I have enough yarn/time. The only thing that I found annoying was the way the knitted items were modeled. While I thought that most of the photographs in this book were astounding, some I thought needed just a tad bit more clothing, either over or under, if you get my drift. While I thought that this book did an excellent job of being throughly modern and hip, I felt like I was reading a teen fashion magazine with the immodesty of some of the models. Still, I would probably recommend this book, only adding a caution to not stare too closely at some of the designs.
