Book Review

Sensual Knits by Yahaira Ferreira, part of the collection of books Jocelyn took out of the library this week.

Diana liked the sweater part of the Lace Panel Twinset, the Sayuri Sweater, and the Cleopatra Wrap. Jocelyn liked the Vixen Camisole, the Betty V-Neck Vest, the Militia Coat, the Arris Beaded Dress, and the Loop Shawl. Both agree that the size range is rather narrow and will likely not make any of these for that reason.
