I would question the author's yarn choices (cashmere may be nice, but how are you going to wash it?!), but you could always make a substitution.
The patterns do look very simple and beginner friendly, some of them even just use garter stitch so you don't even need to know how to purl.

I would guess that anyone who would knit with cashmere or silk for an infant never had a baby of her own. However the book does tell you yarn weight and metric sizes, so it is easy to substitute yarns that will survive the washer and dryer.
