Here's what the bloggers are saying about Spin to Knit:

"If you've always been curious on how to spin you own yarn, there's no better book than Spin to Knit by Shannon Okey. Overall this is a fantastic book that will jump start you into the amazing world of yarn spinning." — Natalie Zee, Associate Editor, CRAFT magazine, www.craftzine.com

"Spin to Knit is a cheerful, lavishly illustrated guide to spinning your own knitted yarns. Newcomers will appreciate the comprehensive, step-by-step text.... Established spinners will find inspiration in fresh project suggestions and interviews with fiber lovers across the country." —The Panopticon, www.the-Panopticon.blogspot.com

"[Spin to Knit] really fills a void out there for someone who is just learning to spin and wants a good resource. This book is a masterpiece. And... I think it's a great book for an intermediate or advanced spinner who's looking for some great knitting projects designed for handspun. —Mamacate, mamacate.typepad.com

"Something for everyone interested in spinning. It's all here! The absolute BEST part of the book? The pre-drafting section. Hands down." —January One, januaryone.com/

I wish that I had this book when I was getting started.” —Boogaj, www.boogaj.com

"I feel confident that with Shannon's book I could turn to a working spinning wheel and I could make yarn. Good yarn that I would be happy to knit with. —The Girl from Auntie, www.girlfromauntie.com/journal/
