Share this purchase with a knitting friend. It's a good little book, and has some very good ideas . . . some that are only needed to read once, but some that are great to come back to time after time. There are some good hints for multi-color knitting, and for us socknitters a cute pair of booties on pages 66-67 submitted by a 95 year old knitter that didn't want the pattern to die with her! Also a pair of knitted slippers on page 68 . . . would be fun to adjust the pattern for those for felting. Not the reference book that I thought it would be, but I got it on sale, so it was worth the purchase!
