I'm really impressed with this book. The information and pictures are excellent and very clear and make it very easy to learn this stitch. I was hubbling in no time. Review by kate (Posted on 8/16/2016)
Love New Stitches
I've only made one item from the book so far, but enjoyed learning this new stitch. It's lacy and kinda slinky as a bracelet and looking forward to making something else soon, perhaps trying 2-drop this time. One of the things I really liked was learning how to make the slide closure look dressier by adding daisy spacers to fill the loops. I'd never seen this before, don't know why I didn't think of it myself as I like the slides a lot, but glad I know about it now. Review by Suzi (Posted on 6/9/2016)
Pretty Good
What I have found in trying to learn this stitch is that page numbers and pictures do not match. I spend time looking for the correct picture to go w page number for clarification and they do not match. This makes attempting to put all of this together to learn a new stitch difficult.
