"Waste not, want not" appears to be the motto at Taunton Press as it continues to spin off material first published in Threads magazine. This is a compendium of techniques from readers that first appeared in Threads' "Tips" column. That said, the really meaty content, now indexed and gathered together in one well-illustrated volume, makes this a good choice for any knitting collection.
