Exciting New Book

Happy New Year everyone, let's hope 2012 is a good one!

Look what the postman delivered yesterday, a new spinning book bought with a Christmas gift voucher :-

I was really looking forward to this book arriving - Spin Art by Jacey Boggs, published by Interweave.  It was only published at the beginning of December so I was hoping someone would buy me a voucher so I could order it.  It's a brilliant book, full of fabulous photos and very clear instructions on how to make the yarns - very professional.

They range from fairly simple single-ply, to more complex textures and multi-plies.  I can't wait to get started on them, just need a bit of time to devote to it.

One of the best parts of this book was the DVD which came with it

This must have been at least an hour long (maybe longer) - I sat enthralled watching it yesterday afternoon (and will probably watch it again a few more times).  Jacey shows how to make some of the yarns featured in the book, starting with simple ones and leading on to more complicated ones.  She's very good at explaining what she's doing and makes it look far easier than I suspect it really is.  She also shows how not to do it, which could save a lot of frustration and wasted fibre.

If you're a spinner, then this book is for you.  She also has a website you can check out here.
