Alana and Hannah each have their own point of veiw, but share a talent for creating flattering designs with the kinds of details that make them fun to knit and wear.

The projects in the book are all beautifully photograhphed in locations around Alana's west coast or Hannah's east coast homes. Sweet illustrations and essays on the individual locations compliment the photographs to make the book a pleasure to page through.

With a range of techniques and difficulty levels there is something for everyone in this book. I'm particularly taken with the lovely way the decreases on the crown of the Rustling Leaves Beret come together to create an orderly swirl of leaves.

I would love this book, my first project from it would be the rustling leaves beret.

This book looks like it is more than a knitting book but seems to present like a coffee table one as well. Thanks for pointing out the details you did.

Love, love this book. Congrats to the two authors for their outstanding book.

What a beautiful book! I have it bookmarked to pick up for my Mother as a Christmas gift. She taught me how to knit just last year, and it is a hobby I have grown to love. Even more, I love having this to share with one another.

what a nice giveaway! There are several things I would love to knit in there!

Gorgeous patterns, I would love a copy!

That book looks fantastic!

I am in LOVE with this book, but I don't own it yet. The Rocky Coast Cardigan is in my queue for my post pregnancy wear!
