….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. 🙂
