Even a novice knitter like myself can't help but be awestruck by the beautiful designs in this book. Ranging from everyday wear like the insect laced "Metamorphosis" sweater to the die-hard-fan Galadriel hooded dress, Lohr's patterns pay homage to the literary works that inspired them. I can't wait to make the Scout To Kill a Mockingbird cardigan for my daughter! - Danielle— From Art / Film / Music (page 1)
