Knitting Book Review

This is one of the best knitting resources I have come across in a long time. Nicky Epstein’s Knitting on the Edge is full of fantastic edging ideas for sweaters, blankets, and scarves. The patterns are very easy to follow and the designs go from very intricate to very simple. I checked this copy out from the library, but its one I’ll probably end up buying. The book is broken into 7 sections, ribbing, cables, lace, ruffles, flora, fringing and points & picots. A lot of the patterns can be used as panels for sweaters, or just repeated for blankets, shawls, etc. The designs are pretty modern, so they’d work well for the young knitters and older knitters too.
