Stupendous Review by Karen

I signed up for Jane's Crafty Class on a Fair Isle Vest. I was so impressed with her teaching. Jane mentioned in the class that she wrote a book with 200 Fair Isle patterns. The book was in the back of my mind for a couple of years. I really like how she writes the patterns and her simple style. I was pleasantly surprised how well written her book is. She has awakened my creativity to try a lot of her fairile patterns in this book. Thanks Jane the book is Stupendous.
