I have two big loves...arts & crafts and books! This week I'm showing you some great books that will make the perfect holiday gift for someone you love...or yourself! And, many of the publishers are giving away copies of the books, so look for how you can win a book throughout the week.
Today we're talking about knitting books!
This is the latest book in the Noro series and is bursting with dozens of irresistible designs for projects knitters can complete in a weekend. It contains designs from twenty-six top knitters.
My favorite projects in it are the entrelac iPad Cover and the Stitch Sampler Tote...but seriously, it was hard to narrow it down to those two! There are some awesome projects in there. You can see a peek inside the book here, and purchase it here .
60 More Quick Knits
This is a follow-up to the best-selling 60 Quick Knits and 60 Quick Baby Knits series. It contains all new designs from over 30 of today's top knitwear designers. All the projects in the book are created with Cascade 220 Sport yarn which is a great yarn for making things from cables to colorwork.
There are some great accessories in this book, not to mention some fun embellished knits! Some of my favorite projects are the Nordic Mittens and the Basketweave Pocket Scarf. Just thumbing through this book will inspire you to pick up your yarn! Click here to see more of the book, and click here to purchase it.
Knitwear designer, Deborah Newton, teaches readers step by step instructions on how to finish knitting project fantastically. This book contains complete instructions for 15 patterns and also has illustrated workshops that go in-depth to teach trickier subjects. It even includes a cheat sheet for tips and tricks!!
Most of the included patterns are geared for those who are familure with basic knitting stitches and techniques and a few are for experienced knitters. I think all knitters will really learn a lot by reading this book. My favorite projects are the Upcycled Bucket Bag and just about all of the tunics! You can check out some more of the book here, or purchase it here.
And now a giveaway!
One copy of each of the books will be given away!
