Book Description

A unique and elegant approach to your yarn collection, this book began as a solution to a problem that all knitters share.
Yarn - too little to do anything with, too much to throw away. What to do with a growing collection of yet-to-be-knit yarns? How to put a bit of this and a little bit of that with more of something else and make it beautiful?
Sally Melville found creative solutions to these problems. She has developed knitting stitch patterns that are enhanced by a combination of colours, textures and weights. Sally had a great time exploring, designing with, and working through her yarn collection.
But this book is not just about using the yarns you have already got. You'll find a wealth of ideas to help you organise, maintain and replenish your yarn collection while creating gorgeous one-of-a-kind garments.
A passionate teacher, avid athlete, and slightly obsessive organiser, Sally Melville brings a new and energetic voice to the field of handknit design.
