Book Review #898
Knitting Pretty by Kris Percival
Rating: two stars (out of four)
The general format of this book was done well. I could easily distinguish between the introductory pages and the knitting patterns. The style of the book was sophisticated and fun, but not exceptionally lovely. I liked this book, but the main problem I had was that not every design in the book had an accompanying picture. Before I take the time and effort to knit a piece I want to have some idea of what it will look like and chances are I probably won't even think about knitting it if there is no picture hinting at what it might look like. The majority of the patterns in this book had pictures, but not all of them. I didn't find any patterns in here I wanted to knit, but I might still recommend because there was a wide variety of things to knit.
