Praise for Aran Knits

"Aran knitting is perpetually popular, and Storey's collection has broad appeal thanks to the wide variety of designs." ---Library Journal
 
"This book is a good one for knitters new to cabling, or anyone who appreciates good design with classic cables. The designs have just enough creativity to make them interesting." —Kangath Knits blog
