Comments about Essential Guide to Color Knitting Techniques:
I have never recommended a knitting book though I worked in a LYS for several years and have a very extensive collection of books. This book warrants a review. It is fantastic for experienced knitters and designers. I am sure that the avid beginner would enjoy it as well. It is rare to find a book that is not just eye-candy but has in-depth knitting content. Bravo!
