99 Yarns and Counting: More Designs from the Green Mountain Spinnery
Green Mountain Spinnery
In their vintage mill in rural Vermont the artisans at Green Mountain Spinnery create 99 richly colored natural-fiber yarns. In this follow-up to their popular Green Mountain Spinnery Knitting Book, they offer 36 classic and modern, stylish and fun patterns. There’s a flock of sweaters, as well as shawls, shells, and vests; an array of socks, mittens, and hats; even an afghan. Patterns range from easy to challenging; whatever your knitting skills, you’ll find projects to please. Detailed pattern charts and schematics round out this must-have volume.
The Spinnery also recounts how they became a worker-owned cooperative and takes readers on a fascinating photographic tour of their mill. Unlike most commercial yarns, Spinnery yarns are untouched by bleach or chemicals. Enhanced by gorgeous photographs throughout, this book will be an inspiration and a jumping-off point for your own creative adventures in knitting.
