The book is A Handknit Romance, it's lovely but I'm not sure if it's me. I'm going to have to think about it for a while.
There's a mix of different items in there; a couple of beaded bags which are beautiful, but I've got nowhere I'd use them.
There are a few cardigan/jacket options as well so I'll do a quick overview
|Wrapover cardigan; a fairly classic style which might work for me, but I don't love it.|
|Lace Shrug. I quite like this, but I'm not sure about that wee ding at the back of the armhole. There are other shrug patterns out there I prefer though so it won't be queued.|
|Fitted Jacket. I love the back, but I'm not sure about the fit of the front; hard to tell the way she's standing though. Not something I'd knit as it won't fit in with my lifestyle.|
|Lovely drape, this would go with anything. This is the item that makes me want to keep the book.|
|This looks like 1920's to me, no real shape to it so it wouldn't suit me.|
|Lace-edged camisole. This is really cute and would make a lovely piece of lingerie. Not sure how well it sits at the back; could maybe have done with a better block before the photography|
|Cotton Camisole. This is cute and would be lovely in summer, would even work in my wardrobe for summer.|
|Beaded top and mittens. This is elegant and drapey. I think the mitts need to be pulled up higher, they remind me of stockings that are falling down at the moment.|
|Lurex dress. Don't like this one at all, I think it's the sleeves|
|Flapper Dress. This is slightly better, but still not me.|
I suspect that after I knit the skirt and the gloves then I may well end up selling this book; I don't generally keep books that I only want to knit a couple of things from. It'll be a while before I get onto the skirt so it has time to persuade me otherwise.
I bought this book, my opinions are my own and all the photo's came from the Ravelry site which uses photo's originally from the book. I received nothing for reviewing the book.
