Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This learn-to-knit book features simple knitting patterns combined with an introduction to the many varieties of exotic yarns now on the market. If heaped in a bowl, balls of these new luxury yarns-aptly titled yummy yarns-would look like some exotic new dessert concoction full of color and texture but without the calories. The authors divide novelty yarns into eight categories and discuss the properties and use of each. Included are eyelash yarns, fur yarns, fuzz yarns, flat yarns, chunky and funky yarns, multistrand yarns, metallic yarns, and jelly yarns. The book includes more than 20 patterns for accessories (scarves, bags, shawls, etc.) and simple garments, all illustrated with photos of the finished piece plus a close-up photo of the yarn used. Recommended for public libraries that cater to teens. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
