Knitting Books

I love books, knitting books especially. I'd like to have a library full of them. There's a list of my growing collection on Ravelry. While reading my emails this morning one popped up from Kim Hargreaves site. A new book release. Oh, be still my heart! Yeah, I ordered it. How could I not? It looks fabulous! I have Kim's book Heartfelt: The Dark House Collection and it's beautiful.

There are several projects that appeal to me. I like the fit of Ginny as well as this colour. I rarely make a project in the colour it's styled for a book in. This would get a lot of wear at work and going out.

Nell would be wonderful for the in between seasons and in the house when we're in the depths of the coldest and blustery winter days here in Canada. I can picture myself wearing it hunkered down for the evening by the wood stove reading or knitting. It looks like a warm hug.

Allure in a soft powder blue Kidsilk Haze (from my stash) over a white layer for New Year's Eve would be lovely. Great with my favourite pair of denim jeans for a little dressed up yet casual look. This one is the pattern that made me decide to order the book.

And finally Trinket is fabulous. I wear a lot of scarves because of an old back/neck injury and this one is classically elegant, yet fun and trendy. I'd like to make this in white or off white. Nicole would borrow this one when she's feeling tres chic.

I love books, but a new one is even better! I'm looking for a great pattern book for lace. Any recommendations? I just can't decide and I'm finally feeling brave enough to attempt lace knitting with my new addi-turbo lace circs. Have a great day and happy knitting!

Oh my gosh. Be still my heart!!!!

I had already decided that for my Christmas present from my parents I wanted a Kim Hargreaves kit. I didn't even know about this new release. I love, love, love this collection - which should I chose!

Thanks for posting about the new book :)

Sorry, I don't have any lace book recommendations. I generally buy individual patterns for lace projects. I'm currently knitting a free stole pattern in KSH - black - as a gift.
