Review quote

In her follow-up to" Cables Untangled," Leapman explores the knitted closed-ring cable in great detail. Her friendly style and detailed instructions make cable knitting accessible and easy to understand, and her explanation of the often-daunting symbols knitters find on charts for knitted cables is excellent. The patterns explore the variety of closed-ring cables and range from small, simple starter projects (a hat and a pillow) to intricate showpieces (a sampler afghan). The illustrated stitch dictionary alone is worth the price--the patterns and detailed how-tos add to the value. An essential purchase.
