From Yarn Market News

Substitute teachers are always a welcome sight in school, and they are as well on these pages, where Potter and compadres Donna Druchunas, Celeste Pinheiro and JoAnne Turcotte demonstrate the fine art of yarn substitution. Providing two options and one swatch for each of 16 patterns—four per fiber weight—this book not only shows good substitutions but, almost as important, bad ones, too. That way, you won’t waste un-tinkable mohair on intricate lace, get frustrated with hand-dyed pooling on a garment that changes fabric width or choose a nubby yarn that hides stitch definition. It’s also fun to see how drastically color play changes a look: Potter’s Rustic Roses pullover, for example, goes from cheery to theatrical with shifts in palette and material.
