    OMG... YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS BOOK

    I was super lucky to see Free form Style in SWTCS booth in Atlanta where they exhibited. Several of the garments were on display and one was even in the fashion show and was a real hit and sent me following a long line of others in to visit. Thats when i got to see the book. I already purchased the Yin and Yan I need to make the sweater I saw. The pictures are beautiful and it finally makes it easy to try freeform art. As Jonel told me, the book makes it easy to learn and less intimidating. The sweaters and things are all very wearable. I love finding a book that has several projects I will make. The felted wraps are next on my list.
