I hate to write a bad review of a book. But if I only write good ones, will you ever believe me? There's also the "If you can't say anything nice....don't say anything at all"motto. I also think about if I ever want to write a book, what if I diss a book by a publisher who might want me one day? Is it wise for me to write a poor review?
This book is by Jenny Hill and it's called Two Balls or Less, published in 2007. It says "over 30 simply stylish knitting and crochet projects". I counted only 4 crochet projects. Many of the projects are made in novelty yarns. Because the focus of the book is "two balls or less" and we all know that yarn is not created equal, and the size/yardage of yarns varies greatly, it makes a huge difference WHICH yarn you choose for it to be "2 balls or less". So, I was surprised that the patterns didn't list the actual yarns used, but saved it for a listing in the back reference section.
