New Knitting Books

I don’t know about you, but I am a book-lover.  I’m really in trouble when it comes to new knitting books.  I just love the crisp new pages, the lovely photography, the promise of a million beautiful new hand-knitted things all surrounding a theme…

Sigh….

So I decided I just had to take a second to share a couple of my favorites that came out recently and are in stock here at Stitch Space.

BookReview-1

As you can see from the stack above, there are plenty of new titles to choose from, as well as a couple that are just new to us.

Let’s start with Scarf Style 2:

BookReview-2

Through and through, this book is wonderful.  It shows that there is so much you can do in the scarf/shawl/cowl realm.  You can always use a new scarf, and if you decide you really don’t need one, you can always find a willing recipient.  Add to that the stash-busting properties, and I call scarf making a win-win.
BookReview-3

There are a couple of great designs in this book I’m just itching to make.  The Checkered Cowl, above, features Malabrigo Sock.  We have several fun colors in the shop.  Narrowing it down to two might be the challenge…

Then, there is the Sylvie Scarf, made in luscious Fibre Company Canopy Fingering.  Baby Alpaca, Merino, & Viscose Bamboo make it super soft, and the fun design is reversible.  Yes!  Colorwork with no wrong side 🙂

Now let’s talk about More Modern Top-Down Knitting:BookReview-5

If you’ve been in the shop lately you may have heard me babbling on about this book.  I think I love EVERYTHING in it.  In addition to my love of the designs, the fact that all the construction is top-down so you can tweak, try-on, and modify as you go makes it very appealing.  All of these pieces seem modern, but not so strange that you will be ditching them after one season.  In knitting, that is key for me!  I don’t want my things to look old-fashioned or homemade.  (HANDMADE OR CLASSIC IS FINE!  I’m talking I don’t want it to look 7th grade home-ec project homemade!)

I love having hand-knits that look like they could have been picked up in a designer shop today, but will still look great in 10 years.  That’s what I’m loving about this book.  Check out the Twins Raglan in Shibui Knits Merino Alpaca & Staccato:
BookReview-6

Love!  It may have something to do with my Gemini status 😉

Then there is the Softest Stripe Cardi….gaaaaahhhh.  I want one!  It’s made in Shibui Knits Linen & Silk Cloud, their lovely mohair blend.  I’m not usually one for mohair, but theirs is delightfully soft, and this design really shows off an interesting yarn combo.BookReview-7

Will there ever be enough hours in the day to knit all these things I NEED?!?!

Last, but not least for today, The Knitted Slipper Book:
BookReview-8

Again, slippers make great gifts, like scarves.  This book just happens to be filled with adorable ones, like the Sleepy Friends Slippers made out of Spud & Chloe Outer:BookReview-9

And, the Brushed Suri Slip-Ons made out of Blue Sky Alpacas Brushed Suri.  I’ve been trying to find something fabulous and fluffy to make out of this yarn, and I feel like these fit the bill!BookReview-10I could go on and on, because really this is just a snippet out of these 3 books.   You will just have to come by sometime to see for yourself!  Grab a comfy spot on the couch, a stack of books, and see which ones need to go home with you!
