new books arrive in the post.

loop a fantastic knit shop in london has published a book of their sample knits that you lust after while wandering through their shop. the book takes a look at knitting from simple to very difficult to knit, all expensive to create but worth every penny projects.

and then there is louisa hardings new book ‘knitting little luxuries

everything in this book has attention to detail for the new knitter to the experienced and gives you the flexibility of choosing yarns that fit your personality or budget.

‘ruffles’. i added a simple flower knit in kid classic

with a floral accent i made from vintage plas

tic beads.
