From Library Journal
Although the title might imply that this is a book for beginning knitters, it should appeal to knitters on all skill levels. In a series of nine workshops, Bliss, a prolific British knitwear designer and author, covers all the major areas of knitting, starting with a beginner's workshop and progressing through simple stitch patterns, aran knitting, color work (Fair Isle and Intarsia), lace, entrelac, decorative details, knitwear design, and finishing. Each workshop includes step-by-step instructions, a stitch library, and several projects. Full-color illustrations abound. One caveat: Rowen yarns, not widely available locally in the United States, are specified for projects, so beginning knitters may need the assistance of a knowledgeble yarn shop owner or knitting friend in making substitutions. An excellent choice...

From Booklist
It's difficult not to "ooh" and "aah" while flipping through the first third--featuring young models in always-in-style sweater designs--of Bliss' latest knits for children. It's also difficult not to wonder why she hasn't yet translated these handmade wearables into adult-size patterns. Only the brave novice and experienced stitchers should try to make any of the 30 patterns. Instructions are couched in the standard format, with U.S. sizes noted and sketches of pattern pieces included. No level of difficulty accompanies each design, and the specified yarns might be hard to locate in this country.
