Industry Reviews

This book is not your branded normal knitter's companion, nor is it a basic exploration into knitting in general. With its relaxed, I felt "hygge'' vibe, its attractive to all, including those like myself who are not experienced knitters by any means, yet wish to still create something wearable and have that push, that temptation to really "do" hit - not just look at it on the printed page and imagine its fruition.

I judge this as a perfect weekend cosy corner read, grab your IKEA blanket, a big old cup of the old coffee, a bowl of whatever your taste fancies...this book and yes, PREPLAN by deciding on the project illustrated you wish to tackle first - I tell you - begin!

No season is passed over. All projects are practical, yet some may be more achievable and have more use value. For example, I myself am more attracted to the chunky cardigans and jumpers than the dresses and zipped skirt - but hey, you may have a different opinion and find the items hold a nostalgic or novelty value.

The personal touch via the author themselves being the model, captured wearing the projects in her native country Norway, fits this book's content beautifully.

The book in its printed form is a bulky heavy issue, with a hardback cover. Thematically this marries well with the books sustainable, non-fashion, clothing built-to-last vibe.

With its 30 projects, I discovered at least five I want to have a go of. Ida must be rather proud of herself as this book is so under her artistic control, with the patterns, the photography and the modelling all done by her fair hand. It is obviously her literary baby.
