Inspiring Creativity in Spinning

This book is an inspiration to the individual who has some spinning expertise. It has been helpful to me in that it gives recipes for spinning specific styles of yarn using a variety of short and long fibers. Each time I look through the book and as I develop my skills I find that there is something new that I learn. But, the book was worth the price if for no other reason than it is beautiful. This book will be a spring board for my own creative spinning!

Book on inspiration for designing yarns

After reading the reviews here, I decided not to get this book. Then I came across a used copy cheap and bought it. I am glad I did. It is great to see a spinning concept/recipe book on the market. You see this type of book discussing design ideas and inspiration in other arts a lot and it is about time that there is one for spinners. It is stunning. The recipes or patterns for the yarns described and shown are a bit of fresh air. It is nice to focus on yarns by giving a swatch for a sample instead of having (for example) average looking garments and small project patterns to show off handspun yarns. I like that it focuses on the theme of the book. It gives the reader insight on how to acquire and apply their inspirations creatively into desirable yarns with meaning. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

beautiful photos

beautiful photos, love the "recipies" for the wool, and the how the yarn looks knit up. A+

Looking at Spinning Different Fibers, Awesome

This is a beautiful book. I took it to our spinning group, Delta, Colorado, last Friday and everyone wanted my book. I think the best thing is the photos of different fibers and the mixing of fibers and seeing the wonderful combinations and results. You will be inspired by this one. Since moving to Colorado I have found many fibers to work with and this book is helping me see the fibers up close.

Beautiful Gift Book for Spinners

A beautiful gift book for spinners, filled with gorgeous close-up photos of amazing handspun yarns, accompanied by instructions for duplicating the yarns using specific fibers (for example, merino, lincoln). The opening section includes good instructional material, although the book chiefly provides inspiration for spinners who aspire to create lovely designer yarns. The book amply demonstrates the results that can be achieved by accomplished handspinners, and it is a typical high-quality softcover book from Lark Books.
