Gorgeous photographs, stunning designs, fresh ideas. My mind is certifiably blown! Get this book, NOW!, while it is on sale. Even if you think you are not ready, as in, you are a new or new-ish knitter, you will be ready (as in, bored with the same-old same-old that is all over Rav) sooner than you may think! You could never possibly regret owning this book. Highly, HIGHLY recommend this book.

This book contains challenging pattern for anybody who wants to do something else then the usual cable. I had to come use to reading the pattern, but the book has a guide to the symbols used and fotos to show what to do. Definitely not for the beginner, but very interesting stitch combinations as knitting books from Japan are not readily available. Great addition to any library.

I have had a copy of this book in Japanese for 2 or 3 years. It is the most amazing collection of stitch patterns you can imagine. It is so wonderful that a NON-knitting friend said she'd like to have a copy, just to look at the pictures! My imagination spins its wheels when I look at the patterns; there are so many and where to start? I can hardly imagine how great it will be in translation. I'm ordering a copy right now!!!
