Amy Clarke Moore leaves nothing to chance in this informative and fun book. The patterns are detailed and gorgeous and have given me a hankering for homespun.
Library Journal
King gives spinners insight into her techniques for spinning a variety of yarn types, featuring plenty of beginner basics but enough advanced technique to please spinners of various skill levels. The photography, which features King's hand-dyed creations, is striking. Spin-Off magazine editor Moore offers knitted projects both small and large to take advantage of the unique qualities of handspun yarn. There are even a couple of projects that can be used with lumpy, uneven beginning spinners' yarn.
