Let’s welcome the kids back to school, and usher in the ‘cooler weather’ with the return of knitting!! Yeah!
And just in time, while you check your stash and get your project queue sorted in your head, we are having a book giveaway!
Custom Knits 2 by Wendy Bernard
It can be frustrating to knit a sweater only to have it look wrong on you because it’s too boxy or the waist hits you in an odd place. Custom Knits 2 teaches you about custom waist shaping, bust shaping and other changes from a pattern. With these tools you can make the sweater custom fit for you. The book even helps you estimate how much yarn you will need for these customizations.
This book blends some very technical advice with some lovely patterns. That is a very subtle balance and the book has some real meat in both areas. It is a great addition for any library.
This blue sweater is so versatile. (I think you might even be able to wear it out with more than just your underpants. Wink.)
