A Word From the Author:

"Big and lofty yarns are really fun to work with -- they make such a statement, they're so bold, and they catch your eye right away. The other thing is, they knit up or crochet up in a flash. However, they aren't the easiest thing to spin. When we start spinning we seem to make big yarn, however it's often yarn with too much twist. Then as you get better with spinning, your yarn gets finer and finer, so going back to a big yarn is often difficult. " — Maggie Casey
