a little collection

Have you seen this book? Or "encyclopedia of books" I should say?
The Stitch Collection by Debbie O'Neill is the perfect collection consisting of five mini books. Each book is small enough (and light enough!) to be carried around in your knitting bag.
I love how it is packaged and laid out, in an organized easy to find manor. It is a set of five mini books of the stitches themselves, designed to help you choose the best stitch pattern for a particular project. Each individual stitch pattern (225 total) is ranked according to its level of difficulty and amount of drape. It basically consolidates a bunch of valuable information into a simple little book. I love that!
I have one to give away. Leave a comment between now and Thursday the 19th at 12 p.m. EST and I will draw a name.

Make it a great one.

i've been avoiding reading blogs this week (as i'm on my honeymoon), but my husband(!) needed to tend to some business so we're using the free wifi at the burlington, vt, public library, and i thought i'd do some perusing. i'm glad i did - these books are adorable, and perfect for coming up with one's own patterns and designs! *goes to investigate them further*

Always Learning said...

I really kick myself for not learning to knit from my Mother when I lived at home. She was eager to teach me, but I wasn't the least bit interested. Funny how now in my 40's I am resolved to teaching myself how to knit. Winning this book collection would allow me to expand my self-teachings to the next level. Please enter me in your giveaway.
