    1. Needles and Artifice is a combo steampunk short story and steampunk knitting patterns. My four stars goes toward the patterns, which I would actually have granted five stars except the way the patterns are given seems sometimes overly complicated and not streamlined enough (based on my reading the patterns). I haven't tried to knit any of them yet. Though I will! Their claim of "ingenious knitting patterns" is really no exaggeration.The short story aspect of the book, I would give only two stars [...]

    2. This is so cool. I got the version where you get the Ebook right away and the hard copy once it's published. I've never understood why anyone would want both before, but in this case where there is both a story and knitting patterns, it makes perfect sense. How many times have I squashed a spendy pattern book to my scanner in an attempt to get a copy of a knitting chart I can put on a clip board? This way I can print out the pattern I am working on so I can easily see it and mark the rows off as [...]

    3. A lovely book for the money and a great concept - knitting patterns matched with steampunk characters and an airship adventure, what more could I ask for?!The quality of patterns was brilliant and I loved the sheer quantity they've included here, as well as writing an interesting and reasonably engaging storyline. Although it read a little more like brain candy I still enjoyed reading the different chapters and the character perspectives and profiles, though I did feel like I might as well have [...]

    4. Stellar.An amazing blend of storytelling and knitting patterns. The patterns in and of themselves are gorgeous (I've ordered 2 colors to make myself 2 frockcoats and some simply amazing silk blend for the Hush chemise already) but even more, the story itself is outstanding! Even my very-much-Not-a-knitter husband got sucked into the story and loved it. The best of both the story and the craft world. The only downside I can say? The anxious waiting for the ladies to hurry up and get the next book [...]

    5. How often do you get a steampunk adventure WITH knitting patterns?The story follows the adventures of a group of Ladies who turn male/female relationships upside down, but in a genteel sort of way. There is always time for tea and knitting. (It was so nice to know that Kristoff makes a good cheese toast. I'd like to meet him myself.)The moral of the storyDon't mess with intrepid ladies with mad mechanical skills.The patterns are probably not for beginners and a few look rather daunting at first [...]

    6. I like steampunk and I like women owning their personalities and respecting each other while having a blast. This is an adventure story that includes tea, knitting and ian sheep! It's not a complicated story but it made reading a pattern book infinitely more fun. It would be nice if there was a follow up book but I think this is a standalone volume. The pattern weren't as interesting as the story, mainly because steampunk costumes aren't everyday wear for me and I don't know anyone to knit steam [...]

    7. What more could you ask for from a book? Adorable and engaging story, wonderfully creative knitting patterns, beautiful photos and an overall creative experience. Simply beautiful. I'm so proud of the Ladies for all they have accomplished!

    8. What fun! A knitting pattern book held together with a short steampunk novella.The patterns all look wonderful when seen in the photos - but although I am a competent knitter the written versions scare me - why do Americans write big chunks of their knitting patterns in semaphore?

    9. Four stars for patterns star for the story.The patterns, though, are really pretty. I'm making the sky captain coat right now and while I'm not overwhelmingly fond of the pattern writing, it's clear enough for me to know what I'm doing. Just don't read the story; it's awful.

    10. I'm not sure if I really get to claim that I've finished this book until I've knit one of the patterns, but, given how long it will take me to do that, I'm claiming completion. I really do want to try some of the patterns, though. Oh Legacy Frock Coat, you will be mine.
