I really liked this book the info on dyeing and spinning was a nice surprise. I plan on reading more of their books and someday I might actually learn how to knit. I liked the cold press technique the best out of what I read. Read full review

User Review  - Mary - Goodreads

Focuses more on dying and spinning them I expected. Found the sock pattern confusing, it is broken down into sections instead of a pattern. Read full review
