Another FO Friday brought to you by Tami’s Blog!
Things continue to progress. Waiting for results from hubby’s the Heart monitor. Working away on mittens should be done for next friday. Meanwhile I thought I would share some “Finds on Friday” :0)
A History of Hand Knitting by Richard Rutt
I have an academic bent and find reference material about knitting and textiles fascinating. I have to admit that I found this book on my book shelf. If you want a really good read, great pictures, charts, history, maps, and cultural techniques. I know this book is not for everyone, but I read it over about every five years. It’s an old favourite.
Reader’s Digest The Essential Stitch Collection by Lesley Stanfield & Melody Griffiths
I did buy this one recently. Basically a 300 stitch directory. Why when I have several Barbara Walkers and some other directories? It caught my eye! Not only an excellent photograph of each of the patterns, very clear instructions and they are all charted. Each section has a two page spread with photographs and location of all the patterns within that chapter. The back of the book has a very comprehensive glossary of abbreviations and International needle conversation tables (including Japanese).I could not have designed a better stitch dictionary, I hope they release another one!
Well that’s all for this week, take care all :0)
