Invited by a designer to join her New York studio, Allison is about to embark on a new life. But when Kelly and Megan arrive at Allison?s apartment to drive her to the airport, they find her dead on the floor, apparently from an overdose of sleeping pills.

The pleasure of knitting can be that much greater when you know you?re using the perfect yarn. In A Fine Fleece, designer, knitter, and spinner Lisa Lloyd explores the different qualities of handspun yarn and presents projects that show them to their best advantage. There is valuable information here for every knitter, even if you?ve never considered learning to spin (though you may find inspiration in this book to do just that). While educating you on the differences in fibers (like Alpaca, Merino, Cormo, Rambouillet, and Suffolk) and the characteristics you can achieve in a handspun yarn by combining fibers according to certain recipes, Lisa Lloyd also shares the three important concepts that enlighten her designs: the use of contrasting color and fiber; scale and perspective (chunky yarns with chunky cable stitches versus chunky yarns with delicate ones); and the creation of? poetic? sweaters that try to capture an emotion. Each of the 26 projects in A Fine Fleece shows the finished project knitted in both a handspun yarn and a commercial yarn so that you can train your eye to understand how fiber and texture can truly transform a piece.
This is the only history of hand knitting. Richard Rutt traces the mysterious history of this craft from ancient times to the present, examining museum collections, literary evidence and popular legends.
This activity book comes complete with yarn, knitting needles, a crochet hook, two buttons and a sewing needle. Learn to knit a long skinny scarf, a cozy hat, a sunglasses case, a cell phone sock and more! Ages 10 and Up.
