The Yarn Animal Book Series is based on the original hardbound book published in 1976 by Simon and Schuster. The author has taken each chapter and created a separate booklet dedicated to the particular yarn technique addressed in that chapter including all of the pertinent information and patterns for the delightful critters designed for that yarn technique.
The author's goal is to provide more economical access to specific techniques and projects for the yarn crafter. What follows is the description from the jacket of the original book.

About the Author
How THE SINGLE-MINDED PRINCE started: A severely injured gray and white cat dragged himself through a hole in our fence from a back alley in DC and collapsed in our yard. Dr. Benson, our wonderful veterinarian, patched him up, and Gray Malkin Stutterfoot joined our family and became babysitter for Tuna-Una's kittens, allowing Tuna-Una the freedom to hunt for food for her babies. The story came from a colorful dream inspired by Gray Malkin and Dr. Seuss.
How I've spent THE REST OF MY TIME: As a Mortgage Broker for 30 years, I followed the lives of first time home buyers, finding mates, filling bedrooms with children, and buying bigger houses... It's been great fun seeing their families and careers grow.
Now I'm focusing on writing and drawing. The magic world of Amazon and Kindle have made it possible for me to follow my dreams! I hope you will share them with me!
