Recently I was sent a review copy of Melissa Leapman's Mastering Color Knitting and I can honestly say that no other knitting books that I've seen lately have made me want to swatch more than this book. It is filled with charts, tips and even projects that make you want to take out all the colorful yarn you can find and knit.
Being the crazy on again, off again knitter that I have become, this book actually inspired me to pull out the yarn I bought way back in 2004 for a Dale of Norway sweater for Pete.
Believe it or not, I've almost finished the bottom band! For those interested in details, this is Besseggen from book #121. And thank goodness for Mastering Color Knitting because I forgot how to catch my floats and of course this book tells you how to do that and a whole lot more.
