Not exactly magic, but this book is a great tutorial for learning the technique of modular knitting. It breaks down the process by shape, with instructions for making and combining squares, strips, triangles, miters, etc., into beautiful, colorful fabrics and garments. The patterns are varied (shawls, sweaters, hats afghans), and each type of module is illustrated in more than one possible combination of shapes and colors. If this book doesn’t stimulate knitting creativity, I don’t know what will! A great addition to the serious knitter’s library, for inspiration, instruction, patterns, and more.
