Review: The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook: Dyeing, Painting, Spinning, Designing, Knitting

User Review  - Skyblueteapot - Goodreads

More useful if you regard socks as an art form and less useful if you want to learn how to spin and knit sturdy, comfortable, hard-wearing socks. The authors also do not prepare their own fleece, but spin ready-prepared fibre. Read full review

User Review  - Felicia - Goodreads

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
