This might be an ok book for your first try at Swedish Weaving or Huck Embroidry, but it gets awfully boring after that. All of the Swedish Weave books by these authors have very similar patterns - any one of them is more than enough.
A better choice for a first book might be ASN's Monk's Cloth Diamond Afghans, which offers a choice of traditional designs and somewhat clearer how-to instructions. It doesn't pretend to be more than it is.
A much better choice for a second book would be "Huck Adventures" by Michiko Kuge with easy to follow instructions, interesting designs and mouth watering colors. These designs show how far from boring a rather limited technique can be! Another good choice for a second book would be "Plain and Fancy Huck Embroidery" by Bonnie Datta. This is a slim booklet but has more interesting and original material in it than all four of the Tams/Duffin books combined. The graphs are also very easy to follow. The only drawback is that it may be difficult to find. The designs in these two books can be used for monk's cloth afghans as well as the embroidery pieces illustrated.
