A librarian savant put this book out on display on a stand and I stopped, mesmerized by the really modern-looking 2-color stitch patterns. I brought the book home, starting flipping through it, started jabbing at these AMAZING modern, eccentric, witty, timeless, punk/meta/innovative patterns and showing them to my partner, and before I'd even gotten a quarter of the way through, said to myself, "I'm buying this book ASAP. I will love it forever." This collection is genius from start to finish. There's all sorts of technical learning at the beginning, and a delightful introduction which reveals how dually-created these stitch motifs are. And the patterns! I'll spare you a slew of any more adjectives and just say that these are clever and infinitely applicable.

Really brilliant two colour knitting charts - some of the graphic ones are mesmerizing and I may have to borrow this again for the cactus chart.
