From School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Many of these 25 patterns will appeal to teens. The thorough instructions and colorful photographs will entice any knitter (and some would-be knitters) to pick up a pair of needles and get started. Teen-friendly projects include colorful hats, beautiful bags, snuggly slippers, and a teddy bear. The illustrated glossary of terms is a great resource for new knitters.

As Taylor notes, it's disconcerting to shrink a sweater in the washer, but if you knit a loose, oversize garment and then shrink it on purpose, you have turned a wool object into felt. But it's not quite as simple as that. Some yarns and some brands felt more quickly, some need a few minutes in the washer, and others require three full cycles. Taylor offers 25 projects, first showing how to knit the item, then how to get the desired look. The projects are quite inventive, from toddler slippers shaped like bunnies to wine bags decorated with grapes. Taylor's enthusiasm combined with the straightforward instructions and eye-catching color photos will entice knitters. Ilene Cooper

This book should definitely be on every knitter's shelf.
I love it.
When it comes to good instructions and real-life experience in the variable nature of felting, it doesn't dissappoint at all. The information is presented in a factual way, and the cautions she warns about don't come off as preachy.
Even if you don't make every project in the book, the photography is wonderful, you can see the effects of using the yarns as she reccomends. She includes some embellished items as well (beads and felt applique adorn some projects).
Its a great book, I think it would be a wonderful addition for any knitter's library!
