It is, Mary. Now I want to try out the techniques and materials it talks about.

Thanks for the comment.

Sounds something you are interested in. Good luck with the try out.

Thanks, Mystica. I plan to one day, and I'm already experimenting a bit more with what I have.

I need this book. I have a drop spindle and some wool, but I tried once and didn't do so well! Enjoy!
