OK, I am adjusting my review after some time has passed. I still think the designs are mostly a little bit shapeless. But my beret turned out fabulous, and the little top with lace sleeves towards the end of the book is darling and is turning out really well (I did add a little waist shaping of course...).

This book will appeal to knitters who like working mostly with fine gauges and thin needles - there's a beaded shrug which is gorgeous but way too fine for me. But I have to say there's a good balance between fine and heavier weights to work, so everyone's catered for.

(Old review) I love luxurious yarns as much as most - in fact, probably more than most, I usually go for the feel more than the look. But most of the designs are too shapeless for me. There are a couple of long cardis in Debbie Bliss cashmerino which are ok, but nothing special. Designs are all Rowan, Jaeger and Bliss yarns. There are a couple of cute little camisoles, a beaded shrug, and a couple of baby designs, plus a couple of things for the home. But nothing new, the only difference is that she stresses the luxury component and the yarns used - hello? mercerised cotton, a luxury yarn? Well.

There's one pattern I really like - a very cute beret done in garter stitch. But the wierd thing is, the guage is given in stocking stitch. And it has proved impossible to check for errata.
Knitters who go for classic, elegant designs should like this book. Many of the patterns (baby and adult garments) are done using fine yarn (e.g., Rowan 4-ply Soft) on size 3 needles, but many more (scarves, mittens, hats, tops, cardigans) are done using thicker yarns (e.g., Rowan Kidsilk Haze, Debbie Bliss Super Chunky) on size 6 to 10.5 needles. The patterns are divided into sections titled "Exquisite Gifts and Accessories," "Winter Indulgence," "From Day to Evening," and "Summer Sensations." In the "Day to Evening" section, there is one sweater with vertical rows of beads that I particularly love, along with a beautiful beaded bolero/shrug.

My book also has a different cover from the Amazon photo. However, the pretty off-shoulder sweater design does appear in the book, as the "boat-neck sweater" (worked in mercerized cotton). The sweater is photographed without the neckline pulled down over the shoulders in the main photo, but with it pulled down in the detail photo.
This book has more classic, wearable designs than I have seen in a knitting book in a long time, and I do a lot of looking. There are multiple views of each design. While the yarns used are luxury (i.e. expensive), they are not outrageous, they are good quality (Jaeger, Rowan, Debbie Bliss) and information on each is given at the beginning of the book should you wish to substitute. There is also a nice primer in the back on various finishing techniques, including photos. I do wish the schematics (all together, in the back) were more complete and included details like neck depth, sleeve cap depth, etc.
I, too, like the concept of combining classic styles and high quality materials, and the styles shown in this book are very attractive. Two observations, based on years of knitting. One: The patterns in this book seem to have been designed by someone who sews, not someone who knits. Note the many, admittedly well executed, pictures in the back showing side seams being sewn and front bands being set on. In almost every case, knitting in the round would be simpler and would result in a better-looking final product. Two: I have just completed the body of the lace-sleeved top at the end of the book (knitted in the round, it looks very nice) and have attempted three times to get the lace cap sleeves to come out right. The pattern simply doesn't line up for me. I've tried to check the web site listed in the front of the book, but as Cikk notes, it is impossible to follow up regarding errata. I've sent the publisher a query and hope for the best, but it's a frustrating end to an attractive project.
This is without a doubt a beautiful book, however, the first project I attempted had errors in it. I even discussed the pattern with my local yarn store and they were skeptical it would work and asked to see the project when I completed it. Needless to say, after ripping out knitting 3 times, the pattern doesn't work. If you are a very experienced knitter, you may be able to work around the problems. I, however, am afraid to attempt another project in this book. Shame on the publisher for not posting corrections.
Yes, these designs *are* lovely, unfortunately, they are also riddled with errors. Errata or contact information? Nope. Not available. I can and do design my own knits, however, when I purchase a book of patterns I expect to be able to knit from it without spending hours re-writing the patterns. Having wasted more than enough expensive *luxury* yarn on this book from a designer who can't be bothered to adequately check her patterns for accuracy, I've dumped my copy in the trash and I certainly wouldn't recommend that anyone purchaes this book.
