- knit: high - spin: low Review by Ilona
If you want to learn about how to spin a good durable sockyarn, get information about what fleece or fiber to chose - chose another source. It barely touches the spinning process itself and finishing the yarn, but provides more information about fiber prep and swatching.
A good part is the calculation of a sock, if you use a handspun yarn, something way off commercial spun yarn, to determine circumferences of your feet, get your gauge and finally knit a fitted sock. Patterns are nice - not too easy, not too difficult.
This book provides you with good ideas on how to work with handspun yarn - not how to spin a good sock yarn.

- great value Review by Marianne Hovad
this ebook is great value even if you don''t spin because if you were to just buy the queen of diamonds pattern from ravelry it would cost $5.50 for just $4.49 more you get 7 other patterns. It also has good instructions and beautiful photos.
