Fabulous ideas -

The artistry is beautiful. The wool appears only Australian suppliers. No equivalent English wools given. Difficulty rating I would say just buy for pictures. I am a fairly good knitter but instructions are more than I could cope with. Really a shame but at least I can dream!!

Don't buy it -

The designs look great and really unusual, but be warned they are really hard to make, with the patterns badly written and difficult to follow. I've been knitting for over 30 years and gave up on the first one I attempted. Waste of money!

Great fun. -

I love the designs. I especially enjoyed using a technique new to me, trying out needles designed to knit tubes without joins. Knitting in the round on a simple projects is fun and extends my skill base. Great work. I am so very pleased I purchased this book! A life-changing knitting experience...

Please be warned!! -

Save yourselves £3.99 + postage unless you have circular needles costing another £2.29 to £3.10 per size because this author is obsessed with 'knitting in the round'. So if you are not experienced or prepared to be with this method, this is a waste of money. She mentions knitting with straight needles but gives no advice on adapting the patterns. I don't have the time to adapt them or to stuff a mushroom either!! I regret this purchase deeply.

Fabulous Tea Cosies -

This is Loani's third book, previously published as How Tea Cosies Changed the World. Which I hadn't bought, once you can knit in rounds they are quick and easy to knit and they look so much better than standard tea cosies. Just brilliant.

TBP says: Hi Loani, thanks for pointing this out. We have now added this information to the description. Glad you're enjoying the book!
