Handspun Treasures from Rare Wools Paperback – January 1, 2002
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The picture gallery made me want to start creating right away. The only grievance (and this is partly due to my lack of ability) is there are no instructions/patterns for the beautiful garments knitted.
A classic little book (94 pages).
No patterns, not much on the really rare animals I had hoped for.
I'd really like to return it.
Also had marking in it, like someone had tried to edit the book after printing.
If that isn't interesting enough, there are pictures of projects done in various wools like Jacob, California Mutant Red, Pitt Island, Leicester Longwool and Cotswold. The projects range from knitted lace to woven rugs. If you are a handspinner, weaver or knitter who likes fine wools, this is a very interesting little book. I really enjoyed it.
