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.

This book has something for every knitter. The colorwork patterns are lovely. There are several aran inspired cable patterns that look like fun to knit.

A wide variety of patterns. Coloured designs are graphed. Needle tranlations are included with each pattern. However, if you choose not to use the special yarns indicated, be prepared for swatch-making. An experienced knitter will have a general idea of yarn weight by the needle size, but will still need to do a swatch.

This book was mostly garter stitch projects without any shaping...pretty uninspiring, although the yarns did look lovely.
