If you pine for your own sheep, don't read this book! It will just intensify your longing. But I know you won't listen to me, so let me just say that once I release this book back to the local library, I may have to buy my own copy. Shear Spirit profiles ten fiber farms, provides 20 patterns using fiber from these farms, and sucks you into wanting to visit them all on a prolonged fiber tour. The photography alone is worth the investment, but I also like most of the patterns.
