Editorial Reviews

Carol Labranche
Oh Dear, this book is much like the first book. All patterns by one designer,using the designer's brand of wool, two dollars cheaper...If you like Jo Sharp, and I know many knitters do because I hear them saying so in my local knit shop, here are more patterns to inspire...One small note. My reviewer's copy came with a binding that was already beginning to loosen. Tut tut. Check out the binding as well as the patterns before you buy.
