Many popular knitting patterns are designed to take advantage of and show off the myriad of man-made fibers available today, but a lot of crafters prefer to be more environmentally responsible. The patterns in this book are designed to highlight the beauty of natural fibers and even some creative materials like reused newspaper. These projects are not only eco-conscious, they are lovely and useful.
No, I haven't shrunk! Remember my little friend LB? Well he had himself an adventure recently. He snuck into a librarian's suitcase and traveled all the way to the Dominican Republic! Man, he's so lucky to be travel size. I think someone would notice if I tried to do something like that. Any who, LB told me all about the fun things that he did. Sounds like the DR is a pretty fun place! You should check out some of the books we have at the library and read about it!
