Is stash busting a myth—just an excuse to buy even more yarn­—or a time-honored tradition among weavers? You’ll be able to decide for yourself after perusing this issue of Handwoven. The 11 projects run the gamut from a twill chore jacket to plain-weave towels in colorful cottons to a baby blanket woven with big-box store yarns. Learn about a wonderful linen silk blend in the Yarn Lab, how to hand-dye warps, and a fun way to use curling ribbon to weave device pouches. Tom Knisely decides to deliberately use yarn twist in his weaving and writes about his findings in Notes from the Fell. In “Yarn by the Numbers,” co-authors Amy Tyler and Halcyon Blake demystify the intricacies of yarn classifications, and in Best Practices, Susan Bateman and Melissa Parsons continue their series about warping and weaving for beginning to intermediate weavers.
