I found it on Amazon by a private seller. It came very fast, in mint condition.
If you've heard of Vickie Howell, you will recognize the style throughout the book. :) Fun and Cool! Very modern.
Sadly, this book makes me feel a little inadequate. But no, I mustn't think that - after all, to quote Eleanor Roosevelt: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." Hmm, let me put my feelings a little differently then - there are times when I wish I had the energy and the dollars to be so absolutely and thoroughly eco-conscious as the authors of this book are.
No regrets, Kathleen! And after all, I'm good at adapting. I have scanned a few pages of this library book because I'm fascinated by the idea of using plastic bag strips for crochet, and I'm all into recycling, and there's a gorgeous little knitted, smocked dress which I might make for my granddaughter.
For someone who has the money to purchase these yarns (or the determination to use nothing else), this book is amazing. You can knit a lovely blanket out of 100% certified organic wool, make a cape out of a yarn that is 70% bamboo and 30% silk, make a sleeveless cardigan out of a yarn that is 29% soysilk ... I never knew such things existed, so for this alone I have enjoyed this book.
This book does exactly what it says it's going to. Excellent.
