This book has dozens of classic style garments that will help you use up your stash and it won't look like you are using up your stash!. It is particularly useful to spinners who have a smaller sheep than they realized when they got to the second sleeve, or to those who spin two ounces of something

wonderful in a workshop and know not the source to obtain more. It also gives us all a reason to search out the bargain basket in yarn stores far and wide. Let me emphasize that none of these sweaters looks like one has used up the leftovers!

One of the great strengths of this book is the use of the color wheel. Sally shows a color wheel with each project and tells you what was happening. If you don't use her colors (and why would you?) the principle can be applied. There are sidebars to alert you to technical aspects. And a touch of humor, always welcome. Dee J.

The section on using up stash in a multi-colored pattern and then over-dying the entire garment is worth the price of the book. Examples of the same fabric over-dyed in various colors shows the range of options available.
