Knitting: Creative Ideas for Leftover Yarn
5 sheep (excellent)
checked this book out from the St. Louis County Library
and now I intend to buy it. The book has a wealth of information
on how to use stash yarns. The introductory chapter includes
information on "keeping critters out", too much
stash, a definitive chart on yarn sizes, substitutions and
suggestions for reducing your stash. (She calls it a yarn
stash yarn party).
patterns include chapters of 'little things' like sachet
bags; socks and hats; home items, small children's items;
and my favorite, scarves. The patterns are well written
and the use of stash yarn is well explained with many suggestions
and ideas for changing them.
found the book to be a complete book of using stash in that
it includes yards needed for each project, comparisons of
yarns, novel ideas and color combinations. When you are
contemplating a project, you will find all the resources
in this book. For example, there is a chart with the number
of yards for each project and another on how to measure
how much yarn you have.
Albright has a very easy writing style that flows well and
is fun to read because she inserts much humor into the writing.
$19.95, I think this book is a real bargain and a good addition
to a knitting library.
