My copy of this hasn't come in yet. After borrowing a copy from the local library, this book is definitely worthy of a permanent spot in my collection. It covers so much more than just colour techniques, it is very clear & easy to understand. Tons of information in the over 300 pages. It's not just a bunch of patterns that you will never use, much like Barbara Walker's "Knitting from the Top;" it doesn't just tell you "what to do, but why you do it." Excellent book, worth every penny at full price and at the sale price, it's a steal!
