74/100 Spin Control: Techniques for Spinning the Yarns You Want by Amy King

This was an extremely quick read, but very satisfying as well.  Admittedly most of the books I have read on trying to create the yarn you want recommend, fairly forcefully, keeping a book of samples.  Ms. King admits that this is not an easy task, but to create and recreate the yarn you want you need to keep this record.  I loved learning that finishing the yarn after you knit, weave, crochet, with it is an option though since it can change the properties of a yarn a great deal not a very good option.  The color photos of examples and differences in work, techniques, and fibers was very inspiring.  This book made me want to go and sink my hands into some of my beautiful fiber and get spinning!  But, alas, I have to go to work instead….maybe over the holidays!
