SUMMARY- This is laid out to feel like a notebook, with handwritten sections, scattered poetry(on topic), and lots of anecdotes and tidbits of instruction. I especially found the design section helpful, though I would have loved her to show the work from basic design to finished project at least once. I found it hard to follow in a few sections, but overall, found it entertaining with some interesting patterns to work on.
