A Knitter's Guide to Spinning: Building Exactly the Yarn You Want by Jillian Moreno

Add to Basket
Book Description

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. Readers will 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, fiber 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".

About the Author

About Jillian Moreno

Jillian Moreno was formerly marketing director with Interweave Press, and helped launch magazines like Interweave Knits, Beadwork, and Natural Home Magazine. She’s the catalyst for Knitty.com and a frequent contributor. She lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with her husband, two adorable children, a basement full of yarn, and more books than the local library.



Rich colour and in-depth knowledge, gained through experience, mean that this book is full of secrets and know-how that every spinner wants to learn. The interesting text gives you thoughts on spinning, preparation, sheep breeds, ways of spinning, blending, finishing and more. It's quite technical talking of drafting, twist, staple length but has lots of written how-tos so that you understand everything. It is filled with sumptuous colour and examples of yarns as well as knitted swatches. She teaches you how to use the yarns not just spin them. There are twelve designer knitting patterns included in the book. There is also a basic guide to knitting. An amazing book that is stitched together with fabulous colour photography.
