For the new generation of spinners and knitters, All New Homespun Handknit is the new classic featuring small projects designed for manageable amounts of handspun yarn. Similar to the original Homespun Handknit, this book offers a variety of projects for advanced beginning knitters and spinners (or fans of handspun yarns). Packed with spinning knowledge and over 25 adorable projects, crafters can create unique gifts and wearables. All New Homespun Handknit includes designs that make the most of a few hundred yards of handspun. Patterns include hats, mittens, scarves, socks, bags, children's items, wraps, home decor options, and more by some of the best-known spinners and knitters working today: Kathryn Alexander, Jeanine Bakridges, Abby Franquemont, Amy King, Faina Letouchaia, Carol Rhoades, Sarah Swett, plus collaborations with Nancy Bush and Judith MacKenzie McCuin, Roxana Barlett and Maggie Casey, and Lisa and Nancy Shroyer. All New Homespun Handknit discusses spinning a wide variety of fibers with a certain project in mind and knitting with handspun. In addition to basic yarn information (yards per pound, gauge, wraps per inch), each project includes a sidebar on the special techniques used to create each yarn. A basic knitting and spinning glossary is provided, as well as information of measuring yarns, reviewing woolen vs. worsted, and reviewing drive/tension differences.
