Recently, a received a review copy of Knit Noro. This is one that I wanted to take a look at as soon as I heard about it. I love me some Noro, but basically use it to make Noro Striped Scarves. I love that pattern, but would love to do other things with the stripey goodness that is Noro yarn.
This book has a nice range of patterns. There are sweaters/vests, socks, gloves/mitts, hats, scarves and blankets. Basically, there is something for everyone in this book!
Like any knitting book, there are some things I would knit and some that I would be unlikely to make. But, I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised at the number of things in here that I would make. Even though I am not really a sweater knitter, I really like the Belted Cardigan Vest and I love love love the Fair Isle Cardigan. The Ridges Ripples Scarf and Leaf Lace Socks are two patterns that will definitely be going to the Ravelry queue.
Even if you are not a fan of Noro, I think you might like this book. There are lots of pretty patterns in here, and they would look good in just about any yarn.
Overall, I think this book is a good buy. There are 30 patterns in the book, and most of them are really really good. Especially if you like to knit sweaters and garments, then I think this is a most excellent book to add to your knitting library!
Knit Noro retails for $24.95. It's currently on Barnes & Noble website for about $16.
