Comprehensive color wheel organization; and stash organization by weight. I was looking for patterns for using up the left over balls of yarn I have. This book did not cover that. Good basic patterns for color work within your larger stash. I really like the organizational sections

Not up to Ms Leapman's usual standards, but a nice approach to sorting and using what's on hand. The projects are the usual selection of hats and bags, with a Zimmerman-style percentage yoke sweater. The chart for combining different weights of yarn in the same item was worth a look.
