It doesn't have to be functional to be fun!

I am a very beginner knitter and have been uninspired to improve my skills with the more functional books and patterns. This book with it's crazy, fun and non-funtional projects is just what I needed to inspire me. Who says everything you knit has to have a specific purpose? Lighten up, people! The imagery is fun and eye catching and I love the wacky models - you can tell the author and all those involved had alot of fun putting this book together. And P.S. - the rounded corners are such a nice touch!

I Like It!!

It's odd, it's different and it's British - what's not to love?!? Very neatly packaged book with a good informative section and accessible projects which some might view as oddities, however I have state - just how many sweaters can a person own and use? Sometimes it's good to get off the beaten track and do something different. This is it.

Great gift!

I sent this book to my cousin who is a big knitter (she was knitting during our family Thanksgiving) and she LOVED it! She was so excited to create some of the great ideas from the book and was really motivated by the author's creativity. This is a wonderful, low cost gift book for any knitter you know.

LOVED IT!!

I've never seen a knitting book like this before! The patterns are fun and funky, and make great gifts (my favorite? The pint of Guiness!)

Explosive!

I disagree, I think this book is quirky while still being practical. I am a learning knitter and the book helped me through the first steps and into a world of wonderful knitting fun. Not only are the 25 designs creative and chic, they allow one to embellish with personal touches, and go on to create completely unique designs with a flair and confidence I would otherwise have lacked. My favorites include the hand grenade and speaker covers. The designs some may find silly such as knit sandwiches and cakes I found entertaining and helpful technically. The author, though British translates well to an American audience and her quirky photos as well as the collage-type designs add a homeyness and familiarity to the book as a whole. A must have for old hands and beginners, go out and get it!
