The other day we covered the crochet books I own, now it’s time for the knitting ones (the list is shorter…maybe)!
This Jane Austin Knits magazine is great — my parents got it for me when we had Christmas in England a few years ago.
Here are some of the designs found inside:
I really want to do some of those wraps/shawls in particular!
Next up is Knitting in the Old Way, which I got in an attempt to learn how to magically come up with perfect patterns without having to think too much. So far I haven’t had success.
Next up are a couple of books by the fantastic Arne & Carlos, 55 Christmas Balls to Knit and Easter Knits:
I love the idea of either the Christmas balls or the Easter eggs as gifts, don’t you?
My friend bought the next single pattern for me along with some yarn so I could make her one. It wasn’t too long ago! It was a difficult knit for me at that time but I was proud of the result:
Next up is Sock Knitting Master Class from which I learned little — the DVD was nice but to be honest I like using YouTube for tutorials. There was some good beginner info in there though that’s worth getting! I haven’t completed a pair of socks from this yet but I plan on it!
The Cool Girl’s Guide to Knitting was a nice companion to the crochet version, and it has some cute beginner patterns in it:
Next up is a great reference book given to me by the wonderful Nicky from D’NALI and it is so useful! It’s got patterns as well as technique instructions and different stitch patterns:
Next up is Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, which I have not yet used. There are some super cute things in here, but I’m not so sure about last-minute…
Does this look last-minute to you?
I really do like this scarf/head wrap though:
Well that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by! I’ll have one more of these book posts and then it’s back to projects! See you soon!
