Review quote

"Knitters and sewers will welcome this extremely detailed, comprehensive and creative look at personalizing thread-based projects. The authors take painstaking care to ensure that the 26 alphabets are not only charted but with a paragraph or so explaining techniques and possible hiccups, especially for novices. At the end, the authors explain and illustrate more elaborate techniques, from beading to stranding, and conclude with a list of abbreviations and yarns. This inspired book is first class." -- "Booklist", starred review
