Want to learn how to spin the cool, funky art yarns found in knitting boutiques (at boutique prices) or on handspun websites in limited-edition amounts? Popular spinner Symeon North demonstrates how to spin unique and creative art yarns, accompanied by clear step-by-step photography that explains each technique in Get Spun.

Taking the craft beyond intriguing but often nonfunctional yarns that are often labeled "art yarns," Get Spun teaches the reader to create useful yarns with structure and balance. By combining this range of skills with an unlimited range of fiber possibilities,knitters and fiber artisans can not only create the yarn of their dreams, they can re-create it and use it for their fiber-art projects.

Intended for the advanced beginner to intermediate spinner, this book explores the spinning fundamentals, techniques for spinning wool and silk, spinning with nontraditional materials (fabric, silk cocoons), introducing add-ins (beads, locks, etc.), and creating exciting plying effects. Nearly all of the colorways featured in Symeon's yarns are created by hand-dyeing or blending. In addition to the spinning techniques, Symeon will share techniques for easy home dyeing and using a drumcarder to blend colors and fibers.
One look at these gorgeous projects and your fingers will beg to learn a new craft! The beautiful, textural objects in the Time to Weave eBook and print book—now in a convenient bundle— include plaited paper baskets, woven lanterns, hearth rugs, sachets, cork table mats, and more offer an approachable and inspirational way to learn the fundamentals of non-loom weaving for the first time.

Drawing on ancient and traditional techniques, author Jane Patrick, past editor of Handwoven magazine, uses everyday materials like copper tape, plastic sheeting, shrink tubing, paper yarn, and granite tiles to create stunning contemporary objects for the home. Patrick focuses on embracing a sense of place and appreciation for the natural world in these 18 simple weaving projects, and encourages a choice of reconstructed, recycled, vintage, or natural materials.

Non-loom techniques in Time to Weave include braiding, stringing, knotting, frame loom weaving, straw weaving, weaving over a pillow form, and more. Projects range from a sticks-and-string coaster, canvas strip pillow, pocket purse, woven paper cards, "waves" window hanging, and more. Clear step-by-step instructions and photography are provided for each design, and each project features ideas and variations for further exploration.

Projects call for simple equipment and tools and materials that are easily available. Each project is introduced with a quote and short essay about the process of making the piece, the materials, or sometimes musings about the process of creation and how this fits in with daily living. Patrick encourages readers to weave with a purpose and enjoy the process of creation as much as the outcome. Also included are hints, resources, and suggestions for further reading.

But be prepared - this is an addictive form of knitting! One square leads to another, which leads to another, which leads to another...
With instructions for how to make wonderful projects and plain-weave variations, this user-friendly guide covers choosing, setting up, and weaving on a rigid heddle loom. Both beginners and experienced weavers will value its thriftiness and versatility. What is wool? Clara starts with the fundamentals: what wool is made of, how it gets off the sheep, and how it is transformed from a jumbled mass of dirty fluff into a gorgeous yarn that so tempts us at our local yarn stores.

Who makes it? Parkes conducts an inspiring tour of sheep breeds from around the world - introducing us to the animals who give us their wool - and explains how to best knit with yarns made from their fibers.

Which yarn do I use? If only there were a way to read a skein to know how it would behave and what it wanted to become. Now there is! Parkes demystifies the generic (non-breed-specific) wool yarn you'll find at your local yarn shop, showing you how to best determine what every yarn longs to be.

What do I knit? Parkes went to some of the most creative and inquisitive design minds of the kniting world to provide more than 20 patterns that highlight the qualities of specific types of wool.

The Knitter's Book of Wool teaches you everything you need to know about wool - and its journey from pasture to pullover. The next time you pick up a skein, you won't have to wonder what to create with it. You'll just know.

New England's seasons call for plenty of warm knitwear, and New England Knits provides an irresistible collection of beautiful designs.

Inspired by autumn and winter in New England (where the savvy knitter is never far from a sweater between September and March), the book is divided into three themes: Walk in the Woods, Around the Town, and Along the coast. Within each section readers will find a variety of flattering, wearable sweaters and accessories (including hats, mittens, scarves, bags, and shawls). Projects by guest designers from Classic Elite, Berroco, and the Fiber Company provide round out the collection.

Emerging knitwear designer Mathew Gnagy presents a fresh collection of fifteen projects for women and men with Knitting Off the Axis. The projects are both classic and stylish, incorporating clever combinations of textured stitches and design details.

Each of the fifteen patterns is designed in a one-of-a-kind way, focusing on knitting sideways or in an untraditional direction rather than the usual top-down or bottom-up construction. Knitting at different angles gives the projects unique shaping and fashion-forward silhouettes.

Learn new techniques for knitting sideways and every-which-way and make fifteen contemporary, wearable patterns with Knitting Off the Axis.

Knitters who want new worlds to conquer can reach for this guide to handspinning their own designer yarns. A rundown on equipment introduces the drop spindle, supported spindle, niddy-noddy, McMorran balance, and yarn meter, while the following sections include choosing wool and other fibers, presenting knitting patterns suitable for handspun yarn, and in-depth profiles of real urban spinners. For crafters who want to experiment with spinning but don't want to sacrifice too much of their knitting time, there are lots of ideas for jazzing up a thrift-store cardigan with handspun trim or knitting a boatneck pullover in a combination of commercial and handspun yarns. Methods for incorporating beads and threads into yarn and a technique for dyeing yarn in the dishwasher are also featured.
