yarn bombing.

So one of the books on my A to Z Reading Challenge list was Yarn Bombing by Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain.

Wow.  Awesome eye candy here.  I loved flipping through the pages and taking in all of the projects.  There were a few tutorials included as well, but that's not really the primary motivation for checking this book out.  Honestly, I didn't even read it cover-to-cover...just kind of flipped through and skimmed captions of the photographs that caught my eye. 

Overall - definitely recommended, but check your local library.  I borrowed my copy, and I really don't think it's one I would purchase outright.  Worth checking out, though!

PS - Still plodding through "Last Night in Twisted River"...
