Two-end Knitting by Anne-maj Ling (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0942018230/ref=ord_cart_shr?%5Fencoding=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&v=glance)

I've been having fun twined knitting. I've completed an assortment of gloves (both fingered and fingerless) and want to make a sweater.
The description of the book specifically says 'sweaters' so I thought this would be a good book (especially for the price). I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge of this book and any input.
Suggestions of other book are also welcome :)
ThanX as always

Sorry, I have never read the Anne-maj Ling book, but I love my sweater workshop book (http://www.amazon.com/Sweater-Workshop-Creative-Seam-Free-Sweaters/dp/0892725338/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1241559080&sr=1-1).

I've never tried twined knitting, but I noticed that this book is recommended, along with some others, in an article in Knitty:

I'd love to see pics of your work.
