Once in a while, I check out Amazon.co.uk to check out the bestselling British knitting and crafting books. Almost exclusively, they are completely different than the popular books in the USA. Knitters we all are on both sides of the pond. But our tastes in books really do differ.
I just saw that the #1 book in the Knitting category in the UK is called Wild Tea Cosies. I think it's going to be a very long time until a book on tea cosies hits the top 25 in the States. But maybe I'm wrong? At any rate, check out the author's blog called The Grand Purl Baa which is quite fun.
Are you ready to knit a tea cosy? I love them myself. Have knit many in my day. Would love to hear your thoughts. Have a nice weekend. Sorry no pictures today.
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
