It’s Knitting Everyday Finery: Practical Designs for Dressing Up in Little Ways, and it contains quite a few beautiful pieces that run from relatively easy to knit, to more challenging and knit-skill broadening.
Physically it’s a great book; the photography is elegantly rustic (a combination that seems so easy but is devilishly hard to pull off!)
The instructions are clear and well laid out, the charts are very easy to read and the models have a timelessness about them (no strong fashion or makeup choices which can so easily date a book!)
It’s true that we knit to make ourselves happy, but if along the way we also make our lives a bit more refined, rich and pleasant in a simple way, then we’ve used our skill to it’s best advantage.
So – would you like a copy of this beautiful book? Here’s how to get it!
