Book Review

We reviewed Defarge Does Shakespeare and we find it a very good read as there are not just patterns, but essays and such. All patterns are breathtaking to say the least and the charts are really well done.

Thanks to our contact Jocelyn a.k.a. knitventures at Cooperative Press, we really appreciate it.

New KAL/CAL happening soon, see the thread to find out more information.
