Readers of the first book in this two-volume series (A Treasury of Magical Knitting) have fallen in love with the new world of Magical Knitting, a dimension so simple yet so captivating that one could spend a year exploring the huge variety of designs which Cat offers. Beginning with Cat's unique Moebius Cast-On, which is so easy that she usually demonstrates it in workshops behind her back while twirling slowly around on one foot, the reader first learns to knit a Moebius band, or scarf. This is the magic key that opens the way to all the other designs. The Second Treasury includes felted baskets (with no inside or outside!), felted fringed bowls, felted and unfelted sling bags, six different felted cat beds (one with paws and a tail!), and the trifold designs, including a knitter's bowl with pockets for tools and a place to keep working yarn away from playful felines. The Felted Needle Cozies, colorful, highly textured sheaths to hold straight needles, and the felted wallets are both excellent patterns for beginners and first-time felters. The book includes detailed information on felting, designing, and yarn substitutions.

Cat Bordhi, a professional educator, publisher, and designer, is the author of the best-selling Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles (2001), which introduced an easier way to knit socks and helped fuel the enormous surge in the popularity of sock-knitting. In 2003 her fiber-filled novel, Treasure Forest, won the Nautilus Award for young adult fiction, a luminous adventure that has won the hearts of many knitters and their families. In 2004 Cat published A Treasury of Magical Knitting, followed in January, 2005, by A Second Treasury of Magical Knitting. The Treasuries welcome knitters into a new and simple dimension of knitting, using Cats unique Moebius Cast-On and long circular needles to knit scarves, footwear, felted bags, bowls, baskets, cat beds, convertible Moebius-collared capes, and much more. When she is not at home on a small island near Seattle designing and writing books, or mentoring other knit designers who wish to write books, Cat travels around North America teaching workshops.Review:
