Review:Knitting in Tuscany

I recently reviewed Nicky Epstein Knitting in Tuscany. I am not a advanced knitter however when I see a book and read it I am good to judge the book. I never ever owned a Nicky Epstein book myself until I got this one in review and I am hooked to this book. I am always inspired by book which not only talks about the topic but also tells me a little about the history of Italy while taking through the projects.This book along with a great knitting book also has some great travel notes and pictures of places. The book has some fabulous designs which I think is worth a buy. The Bella Bride Dress in Crochet, Della Robbia Flower pillows are my favorite. I think this is a great book with beautiful patterns with clear instructions with the history accompanied with color photographs at each step. I think all the knitter's especially like me who love a little bit of history of the project would definitely enjoy this book.
