South Wales-born Mably surrendered his saucepans and whisks for yarn and needles. His enthusiasm for the art of knitting is contagious; his inspiration derives from geographic and colorful re-formations of nature. Most of his 25 designs are intended for experienced stitchers who are comfortable with intarsia (multicolor) and Fair Isle stitchery. A handful of projects--like the gypsy striped scarf and the shark crewneck sweater--can be conquered by those starting to purl and knit. Of course, upfront instructions center on the basic how-tos with easy-to-follow text. All patterns feature graphs, color photographs, and explicit stitch-by-stitch directions. Barbara Jacobs
