The Big Easy by Debbie Bliss is a wonderful book full of chunky relaxed sweaters and beautiful smart jackets. The photography is outstanding as always in these books (probably about 50% of the reason why I buy them) and the patterns are laid out very simply and clearly. The one and only drawback of this book is that I'm on a restricted budget at the moment and 99% of the patterns require wool which would cost £75+ apart from the legwarmers which would cost about £15. Although I'm sure I will one day have the money to knit at least one of the jacket or sweater patterns : )
However, if this doesn't bother you and you are willing to invest some spare money into a jacket you will treasure forever and love Donegal Tweed and Alpaca Silk then go ahead and splash the cash!
Happy knitting : )
