Imaginative? Maybe. Usable? Definitely not. Most of the so-called inspiring projects in this book are completely hideous - the kind of thing that would make even the least fashionable person grimace. None of the horrible projects in this book are worth the price of the paper they're printed on. ( )

I get that the author is trying to inspire people to use objects and create unique items. That is fine. But to be inspired I have to say, gee, I would love to make something like that. Not, my god, can you believe someone wasted thier time doing that. These are without a doubt some of the ugliest, most random things I have ever seen. Maybe a doily should just be a doily. ( )

Relatively useless. There are a few good ideas, but most of the projects are not attractive. It might stretch your ideas about the use of knitting or crochet but there is not much here for anyone who has knitted for very long. I agree that there there is a "thrift store" feel to a lot of this.

Over 70 Creative Projects to Make, Remake and Remix
 
It's more important to be cool and look good than to stick to the rules! This is a book on knitting and crochet that will inspire knitters and crocheters to think outside of the box.  It challenges them to experiment and break with tradition-- to mix new methods, material, techniques and designs and enjoy the relationship that develops between design, texture, color, and shape.
 
Knitters and crocheters are encouraged to create new combinations with what they already have on hand--left over yarn, lacy placemats, and even vintage-style pot holders mixed with things bought new or second-hand. Or to try transforming something old into something completely new! To work on a whole garment--to embellish with embroidery or pom-poms, to mix plastic and fabric with rivets and sequins--or to just add little touches to finished garments. To explore the possibilities of mixing, matching, and restitching with yarn and fabric to create brand new garments and accessories.   
 
Knitprovisation is an invitation to all crafters to create a style that is their own. The possibilities are endless and the creative urge grows once you get started.  It's a must have for all adventurous knitters, crocheters and sewers!

Knitprovisation throws conventional techniques out the window and explores a new approach to creating garments and accessories. The book is packed with 70 simple projects that can be made without patterns and encourages crafters to recycle and repurpose using what you already have to create something entirely new and fabulous.… (more)
