“This book will take any knitter from being embarrassed by their stash to feeling empowered by it! Having too much yarn we don’t use is the knitter’s equivalent of standing in front of a packed closet and declaring “I have nothing to wear.” Marie’s ingenious method helps the knitter understand what we have, what we like, and best of all, how to really use our stash efficiently. If you are thinking she’s going to tell you not to buy more yarn, think again. From stash busting patterns to stash enhancing suggestions, this is a book every knitter will love.”
