Intertwined: The Art of Handspun Yarn, Modern Patterns and Creative Spinning

IntertwinedI love and collect books. I can’t get enough of them and one of my favorite places to pick up books on the cheap is at bookcloseouts.com! I have decided to randomly feature some of my favorites and wants from BookCloseOuts.com on the fiber blog.

This week’s pick is Intertwined: The Art of Handspun Yarn, Modern Patterns and Creative Spinning. I think yarn is an art and I love to craft with fibers that speak for the project. This book is absolutely delicious! The price is great too! List price is $29.99 and this hardcover gem is only $11.99, that’s 60% off! Hurry, as of this post there are only 3 left!

Intertwined is an inspirational handbook for yarn lovers everywhere, created in an eye-popping, showcase style and packed with sparkling, full-color photos. This book will be a delight to the enthusiastic fiber crowd that is growing by leaps and bounds. It captures all the excitement of experimental, handspun yarns, and includes recipes for handspun yarns, project ideas for knitters and crocheters, tips on how to use one-of-a-kind handspun yarns (whether you spin them or buy them at yarn boutiques), and a gallery of handmade creations. The book also features profiles, anecdotes, essays, and thoughts on fiber arts and the creative process. Contributors range from Alpaca farmers and cutting-edge spinners to well-known knitwear designers. There is has been a resurgence in interest in spinning and in using one-of-a-kind yarns, particularly by the all new knitters and crocheters, and there are no other cutting-edge, inspiring books out there to satisfy this enthusiastic audience.
