Ignore the fact that for some reason they decided to put the ugliest design in the book dig the bobbles on that sweater on the cover this is a lovely book And most of the designs are great But don t pick it up for the designs, cute as they are Pick it up for the information.Anyone who knits or crochets is going to have a growing collection of the odd ball or half ball of yarn, leftovers from old projects What do you do with them Stash bust This book has an incredibly educational first section fu [...]
love how this arranges patterns based on yarn weight and really looks at ways to use up your stash one to come back to.
A good solid knitting book, with practical discussion and illustrative patterns.The discussion portion is a good blend of pragmatic and inspirational It ranges from an overview of color theory and suggestions to find pleasing color combinations, to recommendations for tracking owned yarns and keeping stored yarn safe from sun damage and pests All of it was pleasantly conversational, and encourages the reader to experiment.The patterns presented a good mix of different palettes and techniques to [...]

I love the concept of this book, after all I am in year 2 of operation Stash Be Gone I also really like how the book is organized each section s projects are based on a certain type of yarn Having an abundance of fingering weight yarn, I found projects for that gauge very easily That said, there weren t many projects that inspired me to cast on The kimono style sweater for baby girls is darling but other than that, I can t say that I d want to make anything else This is not to say that the proje [...]
Interesting premise for a book I checked this book out from the new book shelf There are some really worthwhile tips and ideas for organizing your stash and combining yarns with color patterns and stuff like that I didn t see any patterns that interested me except the last one which is a afghan in a chevron pattern Note that it s at the library but wouldn t buy it.
Didn t really care for any of the patterns The ones I liked involved a lot of one yarn I was looking for ideas for my scraps A ball or partial ball here and there I did like the color wheel and variety of suggestions for combining color Also the tips on organizing the stash.
Some extremely ugly projects here, but also a couple nice ones love the linen stitch shawl , and some helpful stuff if you have trouble with colour colour wheel and so on Not something I need, but I know lots of people have difficulty with colour.
Good information on how to choose and combine leftover yarns, and a decent selection of patterns I agree with other reviewers on the unfortunate choice of cover photo that Cables Colors sweater looks atrocious to me The majority of patterns are fairly traditional.
Great book The projects are short and sweet but also stylish and the information on colour theory could be useful in sewing or other stitching projects I got this book from the library but I m ordering it online as well, so I can have it as a permanent reference.
I enjoyed this book and liked a few of the patterns It has a good discussion of color theory in the context of using several leftover yarn pieces It also gives lengths of sections of patterns so that it is easy to know if your yarn scraps fit the pattern.
This book is still too advanced for me, but it offers a great way to use those little bits of yarn left in your stash I really liked the baby puzzle pieces blanket and the sleeveless hoodie pattern.
Decent patterns but the discussion before the patterns on using up yarn is interesting and worthwhile
Borrowed from READSLiked Harlequin messenger bag Waves of color shawl Puzzle play blanket Sausalito tote bag Tamara s wrap
Though the actual patterns did not appeal to me, her system of measuring, storing and combining leftover yarns to make into projects is wonderful It is worth owning just for that.
Like the idea Organized by yarn weight But disagree these are stashbusters most require many skeins of yarn rather than left over bits from other projects Didn t find any projects I want to make.
A nice book, but with only a few patterns I would try.
This book made me smile Absolutely delightful Such imagination, creativity and humor.
I want to knit everything in this book And even if I didn t love the patterns, I would want the book for the color advice and create a skein tips.
