Whichever direction you want to go in, this new book explodes traditional knitting patterns and comes up with something different. If you love colour knitting and exploring potential, this is the book for you. You can knit in strips and modules, creative short rows, crazy quilt style or freeform. Myra shows you how to make a life-size template that you can use for structure or the freedom to create your own knitting journeys. My only advice would be not to mix too many colours and patterns. I love the pastel version of Merging Lanes and Sunset Symphony was a big hit with me. It's an interesting book to expand your knitting.* Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts *
