I have the original Homespun Handknit book and I love it. It's hard to believe that the All New Homespun Handknit could come up to the quality and variety of the first book but it does. It's just wonderful!!!!!!!!!

There are many beautiful patterns in this book, all created with handspun yarns. I looked at this book several times to see which of the patterns attracted me the most and, amazingly, there are few patterns that I don't like. My favorites are the fair argyle cap which they have knit with a lovely blue as the primary color; the moth mittens are in orange and black; the Andean Alpaca Poncho for a child with llamas on the border; the Wisteria Lace Shawl; the Zipped Baby Hoodie which is knit in two beautiful intertwined shades of sport weight yarn and looks very easy to make except for the zipper; the Prairie Scarf knit with bison yarn and designed by Nancy Bush whose designs I generally like; Hannah's Autumn Jacket which is a lovely domino knit in shades of orange; Stained Glass Cap and Mittens in black with a stained glass-like border; Old Garden Scarf which is a lovely lace design; Child's Nordic Set in a classic Norwegian design; Indigo and Lichen Beret; and Sheepy Mittens knit in natural undyed yarns. I could go on. This is one of the nicest knitting books to come my way in a long while.

It is amazing to me that I would like to knit so many patterns from a book that has only 25 patterns in it. As the book states, "Knitters will find ideal projects for small amounts of very special yarn, ranging from simple items to knit in an afternoon to spectacular lace wraps to treasure".

The book offers substitutes for the handspun yarns which will help knitters a lot if they don't have access to the homespun yarns.

I LOVED the first "Homespun, Handknit." I knit quite a few patterns from the book, but wanted to make all of them at some point in my knitting career, as they were unique, well designed & beautifully photographed. I also liked the many handy "how to" tips not found in other knitting guides. The "revised" edition is also beautifully photographed--but the patterns are hum-drum, run-of-the-mill. If you want lots of pretty pictures, buy this book. But if you want interesting, unusual patterns that are laid out in an easy to understand format, with helpful suggestions for beginning to experienced knitters, I suggest you look somewhere else.

How often does a pattern book contain 6 or 7 patterns you can't WAIT to start knitting?!?! The patterns in this book are unique (such as the baby's hooded poncho) as well as varied (from lace shawls to Scandinavian mittens. Instructions and charts are very clear. It doesnt matter if you spin or not, but if you do, there are also suggestions for tailoring it to the pattern.

This has excellent projects for the small amounts of yarn that a spinner usually has in abundance. It's not for beginning knitters for the most part.
