Yarn-i-tec-ture by Jillian Moreno
This is the book to help the knitter to create the handspun yarn that is in their head. If you can't create the yarn you want, this will help to visualise it and bring it to your needles.
Different from other spinning books, "Yarnitecture" is specially written for knitters who want to spin their own custom designed yarn to fit their project, beginning with a beautifully prepared fleece batt. Learn how to match yarns with knitting patterns and how to re-create a commercial yarn, as well as how to combine commercial and handspun yarns in a single project. Full colour photographs illustrate the planning process, fibre preparations, specific spinning and plying techniques, and stress free ways of succeeding with colours and colour blending. Features 12 knitting patterns by prominent knitwear designers, including sweaters, socks, shawls, and accessories; projects are "aspirational but not out of reach". Should be on every spinners bookshelf.
