|Great book with very easy explanations - in Norwegian.|
I used to collect cooking books...
I still do. I have a lot...
No, I have not counted them...
But lately I note that another collection is starting to take shape - knitting and crocheting books. Even if I know how to knit and crochet, it is always good with new inspiration and to learn new techniques! Just like I know how to cook, but it is still good with new inspiration and to learn new techniques...
Do I sound like I am trying to justify myself here...?
|Inspiring book and the description of the shawl I am hoping to make is in this book|
Here are three of the latest ones that have found their way to my bookshelf the last month
|Original book is in Norwegian, but you can now also get it in English (as you see!)|
Nope, my hands are not idle in the winter evenings.
At the moment I am knitting socks to use up some old yarn after making some of the Christmas balls. I have promised myself NOT to buy any new yarn until some of the old stock has been used up! I have finally cracked how to do the heel nicely! Very satisfying!
So proud of myself!!!
But I have also promised to try to crochet somebody very special a rather intricate shawl. Even if I have got myself a special lamp - with a magnifying mirror which is excellent for doing bead work - I prefer daylight to do that so it will have to be a weekend project.
So, what is YOUR project these days (or evenings)?
