This fun, colorful book-- a follow-up to the author's previous title, Joy of Hooking (With Yarn!)-- presents techniques for hooking with yarn that go beyond the basics; various methods of dyeing yarn, using handspun and natural yarns, getting fine detail and more. Six projects, with full-size patterns and detailed instructions and tips, give readers a chance to try out the techniques they've learned. The book includes a refresher on basic rug hooking techniques, and 11 featured artist sections that look at the work of rug hookers from across Canada (and the U.S.), with even more examples and creative ideas for using yarn in hooked rugs. --Rug Hooking Magazine, Jan/Feb 2014
