I was playing with thread plying and granny stacks tonight... It's a lot of fun...
so much more freedom than trying to make the "perfect" looking yarn  Tongue

The black is really hard to see but the brighter colors stand out Smiley

I adore those first two photos.  The colors are just amazingly beautiful.

Wow, I'm loving all these yarns.
I've been reading "handspinning for knitters" and it's also got a section by lexi on how to use your craziest yarn in awesome ways.

I almost bought Intertwined today, but I traded it for a book on knitting since it just made me want a wheel that much more...

Is Handspun Revolution worth the cost? I'm sure it's a beautiful book, but I'm very strapped for cash these days, so I don't want to spend almost $40 on a book I might not read. Intertwined looked very interesting and enlightening, so I'm sure I'll get that one eventually, but I don't know how to take a look through Handspun Revolution.

Jane Doe: That book sounds very interesting, but I couldn't seem to find it on amazon.com. Where did you get your copy?

thanks ticklemepink  Smiley that yarn has become doll hair!

bees_knees, to me it is worth the cost just for the beautiful photos, but for practicality I think Intertwined covers almost everything that is in Handspun Revolution. I was kinda surprised when I recieved my copy of Handspun Revolution because it's so tiny compared to Intertwined! I still love them both and look through them all the time.

Thanks for the info! I'll be sure to keep an eye out for some extra cash, though. One can never have too many craft-related books, right? *eyes buckling bookshelves* Right??

Believe it or not, it was in my local library here in Australia!
I could scan the cover to help you find it if you like?

That would be great, thanks! Or if you can find a link to it online, that'd work, too.
