This review is from: AlterKnits Felt: Imaginative Projects for Knitting & Felting (Hardcover) AlterKnits Felt is a standout book amongst other felting books – Leigh Radford has made her distinct mark in this fantastic book. Full of great explanations on what fibers do in the felting process, different processes are covered and of course, great!! projects ranging from small rings to larger totes. The instructions go further than your typical instructions – you’re told why to do some steps so as to make your felted item better in the long run and they’re accompanied by really clear diagrams. A highly recommended book, especially if you’re a fan of One Skein or AlterKnits! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 28 of 30 people found the following review helpful fulling, not felting — but still a great book, March 4, 2009 By Lisa Lisa (Mayville, NY) – This review is from: AlterKnits Felt: Imaginative Projects for Knitting & Felting (Hardcover) This is a wonderful book and I’m really excited to make some of Leigh Radford’s creations. However, this is a book with fulling and needle felting projects, NOT felting projects. Fulling is the process of taking already knitted or woven pieces and felting them (often in the washing machine). Felting is, by definition, working with unspun fibers. The picture on the cover may be a bit misleading since the balls are actually felted. The vast majority of the book’s 30 projects are fulled. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 15 of 17 people found the following review helpful Another Hit from Leigh Radford, September 23, 2008 By D. Matlack (in Wild Wyoming) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: AlterKnits Felt: Imaginative Projects for Knitting & Felting (Hardcover) Being a huge fan of Ms. Radford’s previous books, “AlterKnits” & “One Skein Knitting” I am pleased to see that her third effort only gets better & better. The projects are thoroughly detailed, the use of color and imagination in their development is beautiful and inspired. Ms. Radford is a master and I always find projects in each of her books that a complete luddite like myself, can complete with confidence and satisfaction. A brilliant and unique addition to my library, and a fabulous kick-start to my own imagination. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
