I love the photography in this book! Erika Knight's book Simple knits for easy living has many easy patterns for the home - throws, cushions, bathing bags and rugs. All of them are so beautifully photographed, that I would like to knit them all right away. I will, someday.
The book has an interesting take on yarn and knitting - there are patterns for parcel string and sisal string, and the statement is 'simple is beautiful' meaning no fancy stitches, but beautiful textures and peaceful colours. This appeals to me a lot.
One of the throws will be on the needles pretty soon, I hope.
