Solid basics, 2 Feb. 2009
This book presents the craft in a way that's easily approached. It leads you though the basics of choosing and preparing wool, using a drop spindle, using a wheel, plying and caring for your yarn, as well as a description of different fibers. Everything is explained in very clear language, and although there aren't any fancy photos, the drawings are clear and to the point.
This book also contains must-know info such as how to BAKE your own spindle and how to spin milkweed or dandylion into yarn.
All in all, if you're trying to understand this craft but are overwhelmed by the vocabulary, this book will see you through it safely.
