~How I Saved the Week:
Pedicures at home with a friend instead of going out!!
Alt Fiber by Shannon Okey
Retail $19.95, 25 patterns, 115 pages
I REALLY like the beginning section of this book! I love the section about natural dyes, and I like that she covered more types of fiber than No Sheep For You did. As far as patterns go, I don't think I would buy the book if it were just for the patterns, but I would definitely consider it for the info about natural dyes!! Give it a look!!
