    I Recommend this book!

    This is a very well written book if you have just the basic knowledge of weaving. Wonderful pictures. If you want to add another deminsion to your weaving I would recommend this book. It is especially great if you are a spinner. But there is also a list in the book of where you can get the specialty spun yarns if you are not a spinner.
