We’ve just received the Rowan “Story Book of Little Knits”, a charming book of 25 beautiful hand knit designs for girls and boys aged 3 to 10 years. The designs in this magical book are presented in the form of a story book, written by Marie Wallin. The story tells the tale of a children’s holiday at a country farm house at apple picking time. The designs are shown in chapters, with beautiful illustrations in each chapter. The book includes patterns for all of the sweaters worn by the children in the story. A very cute concept.
Similar to this concept is the Miss Bea’s series of books, by Louisa Harding. There are six beautiful books in the series, including Miss Bea’s Band, Miss Bea’s Rainy Day and four others. The photographs and illustrations are superb. Each book tells a story and includes patterns for the sweaters worn by the children in the story.
If you’re looking for a perfect sweater to knit for your guy, check out the fabulous new Rowan book, “Knitting For Him”. There are some great designs in this book. You should also have a look at Debbie Stoller’s “Son of Stitch and Bitch” which is loaded with fantastic, edgy designs for men.
We put in a big book order last week, we’re re-stocking our most popular titles and adding some great new titles to the mix. To make room on the shelves, we’ve dropped dozens of books in our sale bins at 40% off. If you’re a bookaholic, this is definitely the time to add to your collection…
