Does anyone have an opinion of this book?
Two-end Knitting by Anne-maj Ling

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.

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.
