Knitting Happiness Is….

….a lovely big parcel arriving in the post!

I am a very lucky knitting bunny today.  Hub has bought me a gorgeous new knitting reference book and it landed this morning.

I ordered it from the gorgeous Loop knitting shop – they sent it to me extremely quickly and beautifully wrapped…

I almost did not want to disturb that fabulous mauve tissue paper.  But needs must, and inside was my delicious tome…

Here is a shot showing how mighty and thick the book is.  I only wish I could convey smells too – it has the most wonderful new book aroma…

You can read more about this type of knitting and the author, Cecelia Campochiaro, here.  I was prompted to ask for this book following a post by knitting designer Kate Davies who is in the process of publishing a new book of ‘Haps’ (shawls) – you can see her blog here, and the specific post referencing sequence knitting here.

I look forward to sharing with you new knitting projects inspired by this book in due course. 🙂

    1. You wld love it, Sarah – I have been gasping over it all evening, page after page. It is such a simple concept, producing stunning results. I can’t wait to get stuck in with my first project. Have a look at Kate Davies’ Hap Book too – some beautiful patterns there – I could not resist placing a pre-order today! 😀
