So, it seems that there is always a new book, magazine, special issue, tool, or yarn that is always coming out. And I really do try to practice restraint when it comes to purchasing all of my needle craft wants. But, there has been some things that I really desire to add to my personal collection and I thought I would share it with you all.
Entrelac: The Essential Guide to Interlace Knitting
I have been wanting to make something entrelac ever since I saw a gorgeous entrelac hat at my local yarn store (LYS). I looked at videos by Very Pink Knits and it doesn’t seem like a very hard process. However, I am the type of person that loves to learn from a book so, whenever there is a technique that I want to try then, I am on the hunt for a book to teach it to me. I feel like this book will give a clear and concise lesson and there is the added bonus of having some patterns in it. This will give me inspiration and motivation to try this technique. Also, I really want to make an entrelac bag so, I need this technique in my life.
Ever since Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting started showing sneak peaks of this book, I have been craving it. I love my Coastal Knits book so, I really want to add Botanical Knits to my collection. I just adore the patterns because they are inspired by nature and the yarn used is simply stunning. I am just in awe. The reason I have been resisting purchasing it is because I’m waiting on my LYS to order it so, I can support local. However, I don’t think I will be able to wait much longer and will soon just bite the bullet and get it for myself. (Especially, since she is coming out with Botanical Knits 2 soon, which I definitely want.)
I truly think the designs in this book are gorgeous but, I don’t know why I don’t own it yet. Many times it has been placed in my cart on Amazon but, I just keep putting it off. Maybe I need to order me some gorgeous Noro yarn, which will probably inspire me to purchase this book and create something from it.
Mesh Hanging Sweater Dryer
Since I have started using wool and have a couple of sweaters in wool I really do need this tool in my life. Some of my wool is not super wash, so it will have to be washed by hand. This simple tool is ingenious and it really does not cost that much.
This is a new thread/lace yarn that was introduced by KnitPicks about a month ago. Really, I already own a good amount of thread yarn but, how gorgeous is this yarn. I love working with thread and creating doilies, collars, jewelry, etc. with it. So, I have been tempted to get a skein or two of this. Also the colors are just beautiful and I am so curious about the feel of this thread.
Wool of the Andes Superwash
KnitPicks just introduced their new yarn Wool of the Andes Superwash and I really want it! I really like the idea of having a wool sweater that I don’t have to always handwash. Therefore, superwash is my friend. The colors and the price is right! So, I really look forward to creating some sweaters and cardigans from this yarn in the future.
Well, there you have it folks. My dream list. Stay inspired.
