I got my copy from Amazon - seemed a bit cheaper, the delivery was fairly fast too for a book coming from the US (it took under a week to arrive - since it seems not available here in the UK). Some things I can really ONLY get through Amazon. Sometimes I try to order through Foyles but thats a trip into Central London AND they don’t always come through with them at the end =(
I can’t recommend this book enough - the basic rules included on dressing ones self for ones shape are good. I learned those rules quite some time ago from watching “What Not To Wear” with Trinny & Susannah - I know you have the same show there but with US presenters. They are good basic solid guidelines to follow - you don’t HAVE to follow them but they do make a lot of sense!
Anyway - some sure fire basics on measuring, some sound advice & great knitwear designs included. There are some errata, particularly on Mimosa the gorgeous beaded shawl but they are printed on the web site.
There is also a BGK yahoo group for knit alongs for the various projects.
I’m SO in love with this book and feel like I’ve really achieved something from knitting this. I’ve learned a lot about shaping and stitching and following pattern instructions properly (read everything two or three times before starting!).
I really can’t recommend this book enough - Debbie if you can’t get it try Amazon! And yes, if you do ever get to London let me know =D I’ll come out in my Bombshell and we can waltz round town together!!
Oh and they are apparently working on Book 2 at the moment :cheering:
