Not really a reading book, it's a collection of stitches. I read the introduction, scanned the stitch patterns, and have worked my way through a particular example. This is going to be a great resource--the patterns are gorgeous, and doable, despite the initial OMG that most of us would feel when

we see them for the first time!

P.S. If you ever have a chance to take a class with Gayle (the translator/introducer) do it, she's wonderful, very good at explaining carefully how to interpret Japanese patterns.

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s).
