Yarns to Dye for: Creating Self-patterning Yarns for Knitting by Kathleen Taylor (2005)

Recommends it for: knitters
This is one I'm going to have to buy. I can't wait to try one of the "recipes" in the book.

This book is about hand painting. Also covers a couple other techniques briefly. Most of the book is hand painting recipes and photos of the finished yarn knitted up along with knitting patterns. A great starting point for hand painted yarn.

This book is a little too light on dyeing. There are lots of patterns to use your freshly dyed yarn for, but I was expecting more about dyeing self-patterning yarn. Maybe its not as hard as I'm imagining.
