Luxe knits : the accessories : couture adornments to knit & crochet 9781600595851 by Laura Zukaite looked interesting on the shelf. When I actually flipped through it at the public library, I realized I wasn’t going to bother to check it out. I don’t see myself making any of these items; they just aren’t me. There is also an amazing amount of smocking in the book. It seems like at least 50% of the patterns involve smocking (this is without the book in front of me to actually check). The author includes her original sketches with the patterns and it is interesting see her idea and how she created it in the pattern. I also found myself liking some of her drawings, but being less enamored of them when knit.
