SUMMARY- The patterns are lovely traditional fare that don't require any more advanced techniques than split ring. Instructions are well broken down and easy to read, with a black-and-white photo provided of each project. No diagrams. I was particularly excited about the variety of snoods. I have very long hair, and during the summer especially, it is nice to have a variety of ways to keep it up and tidy. I was so glad to get a chance to see this book. Thank you, Anitra!

NOTE: I've learned from Marsha that there were less than 100 of these printed and she has no more for sale. If anyone has a copy available for sale, please go to my contact page and drop me a line. I would love to hear from you -Leigh
