I was intrigued when offered this book up for review:
Mother-Daughter Knits - it's written by the mother-daughter team of Sally Melville and Caddy Melville Ledbetter. The book features 30 patterns for mother and/or daughter - the patterns are fairly classic in design, and many will suit knitters of all ages. The book starts out with a great chapter on fitting your handknits to best flatter your body-type and includes information on customizing knitting patterns to achieve the best look. Building on this opening, the patterns do call out opportunities for customization as appropriate.
