Easy- to- understand instructions that are well organized and charming patterns. Only drawback a couple of designs lack a color picture of a finished item.

I would probably entitle this book "Simple Instructions for 30 OK Projects". There is nothing wrong with Percival's work, but nothing very exciting either. Projects available for viewing on Ravelry.

As a beginning knitter, I am always on the lookout for a knitting book that makes it easy for me to do a few of the projects, learn a few new things, and write down a few for making later on. And I have been looking for a book that does knit slippers. Well, lo and behold, Knitting Pretty makes the grade on all accounts. It has projects that are fun and fast and look cool. These range from simple things like bookmarks that you can whip up in an evening and be proud to give away, to gradually more challenging ones like baby booties. There are also cell phone covers, scarves, headbands, tote bags, and pillows. The lovely pictures of projects in boy-do-I-want-to-do-these-now colors makes feast for the eyes. Oh, yeah, and there is a pattern for slippers!
