Brava, Jenny! 4 janvier 2011
Par Gregory M. Cotton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I was rather proactive at Christmas this year and gave myself Spinning Around; I've been devouring it since.

I've been a spinner for about 30 years and a knitter for longer than that, I have a substantial library of books on handspinning and knitting, and I've participated in quite a few workshops, including one taught by Jenny. All the technical information you need is included in Spinning Around, and it's well-presented and beautifully photographed. What really makes the book for me, though, is how wonderfully Jenny's personality and passion come through on the printed page. When I read what she has written about Grouse (be prepared to snuffle), about Knitting Camp, or about very authentic indigo vats, I feel like she's right there in the room talking with me, and let me tell you---that is a true joy! If you're a handspinner or a knitter, or if you are just interested in reading about another person's passions, do yourself a favor and buy a copy---I can promise you'll be happy that you did.

Hearty thanks for writing, Jenny, and equal thanks to Meg and Schoolhouse Press for ensuring that Jenny's words and passion are there for us all. What riches!

"SPINNING AROUND" A GEM FOR YOU KNITTING LIBRARY 1 janvier 2011
Par Karen Hamski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Spinning Around book review

As an elementary computer teacher, I taught my students not worry if they didn't remember how to do it, just remember you can do it. As a new spinner with maybe a whole 5 hours worth of spinning and 1 hour lesson with Amy Mielke. I was worried I may not understand a lot of the information in this book, especially since there were things being covered I had never heard of, who knew there were so many things to consider when choosing fleece. Jeannine covers a vast amount of information on all aspects of picking and preparing the fleece to the knitting project.. I thought I was going to barely keeping my head above water while reading this book. However, this book is like a stitch dictionary, you may not need all of it all of the time but it is going to be the gem of your reference library for all aspects of preparing, spinning, dying and knitting fleece. Yet each section is a book within it's self...if you never want to card the fleece you can go to the next section of spinning, if you don't want to spin then there is the dying section again books with in a book.
While reading the book there were things that went flying by me at supersonic speed, due to my low level of experience, there was so much information, what saved me were the extremely clear photos in the book to use for reference for what I had read, that I found my self understanding the information. The entire book is filled with beautifully, well defined pictures to back up what you're reading. As I worked my way through the book towards, spinning I was able to hang in there and found this section full of helpful information to take me to the next level of my spinning education, and there is still so much more I can go back to include, when the time is right.. I can't wait to try some of the techniques that Jeannine presents in this section...all so exciting. There are several drafting techniques to try, along with plying and joins. Jeannine fills this book with tips and "how to", and stress's several times...EZ and Meg Swansen's phase "Knitter's Choice" use as you wish.
When I got to the dying section I wanted to run out to buy supplies for my new dying studio, a new frontier for me. Not sure I will be able to find a boy to pee in a jar, but there are many other things in this section to keep everyone happy.

Complete spinning reference and fun knitting patterns! 13 mars 2011
Par Joanna Daneman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've knitted since I was a kid, but I have also been hand spinning since the early 90's and it's a fun activity. I take it up from time to time in order to relax; the whirring of the spinning wheel or the hypnotic twirl of a drop spindle are very soothing. The yarn you end up with is often a surprise--and it's amazing to go from fluff to a beautiful plied yarn with colors dancing in the skein.

I've had a number of reference books that go over all the aspects of the craft from fiber preparation to dyeing to spinning, plying and then knitting. This book was a complete surprise. I was expecting a bit about spinning yarn and a lot on how to use in with the adaptations of Elizabeth Zimmermann and Meg Swansen's patterns found in their books and in their newsletter "Woolgathering."

Instead, I found a very complete reference, that had info on carding, using forks to process fleece, picking a fleece out (what to avoid, how to test the fiber), spinning methods, plying methods including both Navajo and Andean and a lot more. I was amused to see my "unvention"--postage stamp sized samples of spun yarn (efficient in using not too much precious handspun but giving you a good idea of how a handspun yarn will knit up in a project) called exactly that--Postage Stamp Samples. I thought I'd invented that, but you know, nothing new under the sun!

The lavish photos are VERY GOOD and let you see what's going on. I can't believe the spinning part of the book is only 90 pages--it is VERY rich in photos and very complete.

If I had to recommend one text for someone who is taking up spinning and has advanced past the first course in spinning, this would be the book.

Handspun tribute to Elizabeth Zimmermann 19 juin 2011
Par D. Boyken - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Spinning Around is a spinning book that devotes itself to making yarn so you can knit Elizabeth Zimmermann's patterns. More or less. Elizabeth Zimmermann is the author's inspiration, but that's really a bonus, because to me, the book is really about making the yarn.

The book is divided into three sections, the first of which is spinning. The author talks about her own experiences as she guides you through scouring fresh-off-the-sheep fiber, and then getting the fiber ready to spin with carding, combing, flicking techniques. She discusses spindles and spinning wheels, and touches on drafting techniques. Basically, she covers all the things you would expect in a spinning book, (though many sources these days start with ready-to-spin wool and go from there).

Next stop is color, where she guides you through basic dyeing techniques so you aren't limited to sheep colors. These two parts alone are worth the book. The photos used to illustrate each step are clear and in color, capturing the dynamic spinning process as well as still photos may. There are other books that cover the same material, more or less, but this one does it well.

The final section, though, is a hand-spun tribute to Elizabeth Zimmermann. The author goes through some of EZ's canon of designs, giving suggestions, samples and guidance as to what kind of wool you should use for each. She gives brief patterns for each, too.

Spinning Around: Spinning, Dyeing & Knitting Elizabeth Zimmermann's Classics
This is a beautiful book! "Spinning Around" is Jeannine Bakriges first published book, but it is a culmination of over 30 years of spinning, dyeing, and knitting experience. It is divided into 3 parts: spinning, color, and knitting. Each section is packed full of technical detail, the author's advice, and many SUPERB photographs!! I love the colors of the dyed fibers in the pictures. They pop! Bakriges is a natural teacher and I found the instructions to be clear and concise. It's about spinning, dyeing and knitting, but you don't have to do all three. Each part can stand alone and inspire you to learn new skills or help you take your skills to a new level. This is the perfect book for the Elizabeth Zimmermann/Meg Swansen enthusiast but should also appeal to the beginner in any of these three disciplines. Bakriges' writing style is personal and warm but also contains the attention to detail that is needed. This book is sure to inspire!
