A great new shipment of books has arrived at the store and we are highlighting some of the titles here.
Judy Durant's 101 One Skein series is a great asset for any knitter who wonders what to make with those lonely single skeins in their stash. After all, how many hats can you make? Thankfully, there are plenty of great patterns of all kinds in 101 Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders and 101 Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders. I personally probably have more sock yarn than any other kind of yarn in my stash so I love the variety of projects in the sock book. These glossy paperbacks pack a lot of punch in a small package. At $18.95 each, you can get one or both and it's still a bargain!
Vogue & knitting go together like peanut-butter and jelly and so it's no wonder they have published their own line of hardback stitch dictionaries. The crocheters don't have to feel left out because a whole stitchonary is dedicated just to crochet stitches! From color knitting, to lace patterns, cables and more, these stitchonaries would make a great technical library for any crafter. These lovely hardback books are priced at $29.95 and would make great presents.
Never knit socks before? Great! Veteran sock-knitter? Still great! We have some amazing new sock pattern books on the shelves and whether you've been knitting socks for years or are just getting started, these books are excellent resources. As a long-time sock knitter, I love Wendy's Johnson's toe-up patterns. I also love the usability of the 2-at-a-time Socks book by Melissa Morgan-Oakes because the spiral binding allows it to lay flat and the illustrations are very clear, which is a great way to learn a new technique.
