Book Review: Knitting Reimagined 20 juin 2014
Par Kimberli Trenholm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
This book was received free in exchange for a review from [...]. I give my full and honest opinion of it, so no worries, this is all true stuff.

When I first saw the opportunity to review this book I was excited because I've been an avid knitter since I was 8-years-old. However, I figured the title was creative book title hoo-ha. How many of us have been there? We get a book with a mysterious sounding title like 'REIMAGINED' in it and it's just a bunch of crafts for 5-year-olds in it. Well, this is not that book!

Okay I lost the pics I took of the projects I want to start. So, I'll just tell you. There is a bunch of squares turned into shawls and caplets. There are shrugs, vests, little red ridinghood style coat and other funky designs that made me wrinkle my nose at first. But...

Did you see the title is 'Knitting REIMAGINED'? At the start of each pattern there are other ideas given if the pattern is just not quite speaking to you. That's 90's looking sweater with a huge horse head on the side of it. It offers to get rid of that motif... or change up the color blocks. You have the freedom to play with the patterns and make them all uniquely yours.

Another feature I liked about this book is that everything is organized and labeled by skill level and time taken to finish the project.

The only thing I didn't like about this book? I didn't see size options for any given above XL and I fully believe chunky girls deserve stylin options too.

Imaginative Knitting 15 juin 2014
Par Micaela Langevin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
All the things
I am an obsessive knitter. I have been knitting since college and have been inspired by knitting for many years, even resulting in designing my own patterns for a variety of uses. With that being said, I was over the moon to see a Nicky Epstein book pop up for review. I am familiar with her work and while I don't own any of her books, she is a very prolific designer with rave reviews.

The picture on the cover is a good representation of what is going on in the book. I have to admit that it is not to my personal taste. All the pieces integrate innovative design elements with garments and accessories. I just think it is a little too much on all the patterns. Categories like "Directionals" help the reader understand unconventional construction. Nicky does a great job explaining and gives the reader access to customized options.

My personal taste runs a little simpler. If I make any of the patterns from the book, I will remove half the design elements. Everything is too busy for everyday wear. I think that the pieces will be excellent with a simpler theme.

With that being said, I think the book is organized, great pictures, clear instructions, and great schematics.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.

Creative, great knitting architecture, but not for me 3 juin 2014
Par RBB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
It's clear that a lot of thought and effort went into this book. It takes knitting shapes and techniques beyond the ordinary, yet manages to maintain tastefulness and style. It would be a source of inspiration and a good jumping-off point for someone who wanted to take an adventurous approach to garment creation. Fifteen years ago, I'd have kept this book as a resource in my huge knitting library. I realized as I went through it, though, that I am now unlikely to venture into these unusual shapes; certainly not to wear myself. They would be wonderful for a younger generation, and I applaud the author's work. I am returning the book because it's not right for ME; it will surely be wonderful for others. My star rating is because it really is an excellent book, in my opinion.

Knitting reimagined 8 juin 2014
Par A. Wallis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I was so excited to receive a copy of Nicky Epstien's new book. I own one of her books already and have purchased others as gifts. As a seasoned knitter I appreciate the thought that went into this book. The patterns are clearly written and have good diagrams to explain innovating ideas for construction, with both charts and written directions to suit anyone's knitting preference. The author also categorized the patterns in chapters based on each construction method. I enjoyed the way each pattern had a thorough introduction, it not only listed the typical information about needle and yarn requirements, but also had skill level and an idea of how much time the garment would take an average knitter to make. My absolute favorite part is how the author tells how you can reimagine or reinvent the garment to suit your tastes. The book includes patterns for small to x Large sizes and also has patterns for all skill levels. It is frustrating when purchasing a pattern book to have patterns that are only for smaller sizes or that only have one or two patterns a novice knitter could try knitting.
All that being said, when I am looking for a book to have on my bookshelf I am very ruthless and probably wouldn't care to own this one, reserving it to check out from the library or borrow from a friend. I would highly recommend anyone considering purchasing this book to find a copy at a local yarn or bookstore first. Many of the projects are " uniquely atypical" which was exactly what the author was trying to create. That being said, there are only four patterns that I would consider knitting out of 25. Thankfully, there are enough suggestions and I have enough imagination to see potential in several others. I wish all of the patterns were more on the practical side, but we have many authors that are creating knitting projects like that right now. Kudos to Nicky Epstein for stepping outside the box in a brave fashion forward book.
Thank you to blogging for books, and potter craft books for the opportunity to review this book. This review is my personal opinion and I was in no way compensated for this review.

Not your grandma's knitting... 9 juillet 2014
Par Newsgirl1 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As I looked through all the patterns tucked beneath the covers of this book I wondered how in the world I was going to review it in a favorable light.  I, personally, just couldn't grasp the lines, the detail or how modern the knits were.  All I could imagine was how nice a coffee table book it would make.  Really more of a book best admired for it's photographic splendor rather than actually attempting the work within.
 
This is not your Grandma's knitting, for sure.  ReImagined is an understatement in my opinion.  The patterns are very avant garde...with unusual lines and boxy shapes.  If I could combine Andie Walsh (you know...Pretty In Pink heroine) and Katniss Everdeen into a sweater, that might give you a good idea of what to expect.  It is not my style of knitting, nor even remotely on my skill level.  The pictures are lovely to look at, though.  Epstein presents her knits in stunning form.
 
But as I continued through, it began to occur to me that maybe that's the point of the whole thing.  Knitting ReImagined isn't meant to appeal to your delicate, traditional or heirloom knitting.  It's meant for a new generation of fiber artists.
 
I know I wish I had learned to knit from my grandmother or even my mom.  But I didn't.  I learned from You Tube.  However, it is something I intend on passing down to my girls and when they are grown, their knitting is going to look so much different from my knitting.  Instead of it being an art on the brink of extinction, maybe it will be busy with revolution.  New rules, new fibers, new stitches, new ways of wearing the finished product.  Maybe our knitting, if pushed out of the box a little, can be left to evole into something beautiful yet modern that our children and their children can enjoy for years to come.  Afterall, knitting is about legacy, right?.  It certianly is not about what is lost, but about what is gained.
 
So even though this book isn't necessarily my style now, that's not to say it won't be someone's style later.
 
I fully intend on trying my hand at at least one of the patterns...if not more.  And I would recommend this book to any knitter looking to push their boundaries a little...explore a different technique...and live on the knitting edge. :)
