5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for spinners! 19 May 1997
By A Customer
I discovered this book as a beginning spinner, and I was thrilled with the opportunity to see so many different small projects which would let me experiment with a variety of yarns. I soon realized that I kept coming back to it for information on knitting techniques, for inspiration for gifts, and for the well designed small projects. The editors inspired me to branch out in my knitting, to try hats and socks, and to try new techniques in my spinning as well. Although each project is designed by a spinner for handspun yarn (and includes information on spinning a suitable yarn), the editors also provide excellent recommendations for substituting commercially available yarns.

Opening "Homespun, Handknit" is like sitting down with Grandma for a knitting lesson. This unpretentious little book's beautiful color photos of knitted hats, socks, gloves and mittens warms you up just by reading it. Once you pick up your knitting needles, you're hooked!
There are beautiful patterns here for every skill level, with projects small enough to tackle in a weekend and challenging enough to engage your intellect as well as your fingers.
I can't wait for snow to fall--I'll be the lady cozied under the afghan, knitting up a "Homespun, Handknit" storm.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite hat and mitten book! 28 Dec 1998
By A Customer
The instructions, from various knitters, are easy to understand and follow. The resulting projects all have turned out beautifully, and I have made many of them several times. Favorites are often requested by family and friends. There is no better way to share warm feelings than by giving warm fingers. This book has been a mainstay of mine for nearly 10 years.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good, solid book 14 July 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a nice, clear book, but do be warned that the patterns are a bit worthy or even old-fashioned, so don't expect anything particularly modern, although the northern lights bohus hat is pretty fab. You'll find several hats here, including tams and the usual bobble hat but also an earflap hat, hooded scarf, pill box hat, double cap (lacy) with a chart for adding the wearer's name on the inside, a balaclava and rather interesting helmet. There are several mittens and some really nice and stylish gloves. In addition there are several socks including some rather lovely shaped ones in grey plus multicolours. You'll be introduced to a number of interesting techniques along the way as well as some pretty patterns. Overall this is a book you'll make things from, and probably several times because the patterns are practical and the designs will please most people, but it isn't the kind of book you might be immediately drawn to because of any wow factor.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice book. 11 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This says what it does on the cover. If you want lots of small projects for your hand spun this has them. Variety of patterns from very easy up to very patterned to suit all skill sets. Not all the patterns are to my taste but most are & some will certainly be used.
Very nice written descriptions given for all the projects & instructions are clear. A very nice book to have.
