I can always find inspiration in my book collection – there’s something very satisfying about curling up with a cup of tea and leafing through a stack of knitting and crochet books.
We have some new books in the shop this week and I’m already getting ideas…
Comfort Knitting & Crochet Afghans from Norah Gaughan, Margery Winter, and the Berroco Design Team makes even me want to make an afghan! 50 patterns range from stylishly traditional to excitingly modern. We recommend Berroco Vintage and Weekend for the patterns in this book.
Toe-up is my favorite way to do socks, so I’m excited to try the patterns in Toe-Up!: Patterns and Worksheets to Whip Your Sock Knitting Into Shape by Chrissy Gardiner. The book includes blank worksheets so that you can use your favorite toe and heel shaping methods to create your own personalized pattern.
