THE PROMISES OF YET ANOTHER KNITTING BOOK...
MUST HAVE A VERY BAD CASE OF SPRING FEVER!
So to end the fever I bought the book and signed up for the One Skein Secret Pal Exchange. Very much looking forward to the swap, and considering what I will knit from One Skein to send to my pal in August. Thinking of knitting a cupcake for my sister-in-law for Easter dinner as a lark! Would make a cute hostess gift, I think!
Go to www.oneskein.com and www.oneskein.blogspot.com to see what all the buzz is about. You even get to peek inside the book to see some of the offerings. It was well worth $19.95!
My favorites, beside the cupcakes, are Petal baby bib, tank top, baby bolero, garter mittens, felted bowls, OH, JUST GO BY THE BOOK ALREADY-IT'S TERRIFIC!
Also bought Nicki Epstein's Knitted Flowers. Each photo is a work of art.
And finally, I was completely charmed by the Mason-Dixon Knitting book, as it is chock full of folksie-gone-contemporary knitting ideas that will keep me busy this summer with the mountain of Sugar and cream cotton yarn I have collected.
