Thoroughly enjoyed the items I knit from this book and I have several more planned. I don't do lace, and was sure I didn't want this book and would never knit from it. I bought it to make the Katherine Hepburn cardigan as a gift. It turns out I really like many of the patterns, and have put items from this book on my to-do list.

The book has 21 patterns and only 3 pages with errata, but the sizing seems to run small and tight. ( )

Love, Love, LOVE!!! It is hard to decide what to do first. I think the cover jacket is it though, feather and fan is my favorite pattern ever. ( )

NEEDLEWORK & FABRIC CRAFTS. Custom handbags and handcrafted purses are hotter than ever - bags have become the trendy way to show off personal style. As knitters move away from the scarf, bags are replacing them as the most popular small project to make. From a tiny pouch to carry an iPod to a generous tote based on nineteenth-century carpet bags to a felted messenger-style bag to a delicate purse with handles made of bracelets, knitters and crocheters will find loads of practical projects and inventive inspiration from twenty top knitwear designers. Each project features gorgeous photographs and step-by-step instructions. In addition to 22 innovative patterns, the Design Notebook chapter examines the essence of the knitted bag and how to create a bag of your own. You can learn ways to give a knitted or crocheted bag shape, depth, stability, handles, closures, and fasteners.… (more)
