This book is jam packed with ways you can use a simple
ball of string and make it into something beautiful
and practical.

There are crafty makes (coiling &  knotting), 
crochet and knitting projects
so every type of crafter will have something 
to make from this book.

The 16 varied projects make things for
around the house to make some beautiful pieces
to making yourself a fantastic purse.

The 16 projects are split into sections;
The Kitchen
The Office
The Porch
The Bathroom

All of the basics are explained for every type
of craft, this includes knitting & crocheting.
All of the instructions are split into
easy to understand steps and there are
photo's for each of these steps.
It's a brilliant book for learning the basics
of crochet and knitting
and make some projects with the things
you have learned.

All of the projects are practical and very stylish.
You will be amazed what you can create with
a ball of string.

Different types of string are used in the 
projects from chunky sash cord to
soft cotton braid.

The book starts with beautiful pictures
of the things you can make.
The book has a hessian look which
really goes with the theme.
A lot of effort has been put into the design
of the book to match the designs
of the projects.

The patterns are versatile and very easy to follow.
I've already ordered in some supplies and can't
wait to get started.
I'm making some of the projects for presents
for family and friends.

Brilliant book and who knew you could
do so much with a ball of string.
