Review by eclecticdodo
A knitting and crochet book that's been on my wishlist for a while now, I finally had the perfect excuse to buy it for myself (I'm participating in a yarnbombing with a woodland theme). There are loads of lovely patterns in here. I'm loving the thought that has gone into all the different designs of leaves. So far that's all I've tried out but I'll be doing more. There's one fabulous pattern for birdsnests using rafia which I can't wait to test.
