Praise for Lene Holme Samsoe's previous title, Feminine Knits:
"5 out of 5 stars. The feminine and romantic designs showcase both contemporary and vintage ideas for fashion." - Knitting News
"Samsoe's girly show, 22 items of spiced sugar--but not sticky-sweet--niceness. Lace is the headliner throughout, with openwork making appearances as both star (floral-motif jackets, a tiered skirt, a beribboned bolero) and supporting player (tinging the edges of a triangle shawl, supplying a saucy central inset to a square-neck tank). Bobbles, pompoms, jacquard and cables add even more romantic lyricism to already alluring pieces." - Yarn Market News
"A gorgeous collection... Samsoe's patterns are very well written and clearly presented. I found a pattern for nearly every women in my life in this book." - KnitPurlGurl.com
"Delicate details. Attractive shapes. Pretty... All the designs (and they're mostly all sweaters) are what they claim to be--feminine knits." - KnittingScholar.com
"This volume is newly translated into English and features beautiful sweater, scarf and jacket patterns perfect for intermediate to advanced knitters." - American-Statesman
"Captivating designs with flattering silhouettes." - Quick & Easy Crochet
"The designs are interesting shapes, as are the uses of stitch patterns, such as the bobble and leaf cable at the centre of an Aran." - Slipknot: The Journal of the Knitting & Crochet Guild (UK)

Some designs are a little description-heavy (there's no charts in the book) but I got used to it after a little while.
I am knitting a cabled sweater from it and there has only been one minimal change I needed to make so I assume they weeded out any technical errors in their first language draft.
A great book for an experienced knitter looking to make very wearable but unique pieces!
Very good, detailed instructions-no errors so far and as I`m knitting the lace blouse, this would be evident very quickly.
