I'm a "circular" knitter. Don't know about you, but I love working in the round, with the right side facing me. Double pointed needles or circulars - love them both. I know there are knitters who love the circular or "in the round" thing and those who love the back and forth. But let's not discuss that right now. Let's talk about a brilliant new book...... Knitting From The Center Out by Daniel Yuhas.
I've been so wanting to share it with all of you in case you missed it. I do not know the author personally but I like how his knitting mind works. All the projects are worked from the center out - or down - or whatever.
There are 28 projects including chapters on Sweaters......
Toys..... Really cute!
Shawls - and we all know how many of you love making the shawls!
For me, Daniel designed a "sunflower shawl". Just joking but you all know about the sunflower madness around here if you are a longtime reader.
There's lots of very good "meat" and instructional chatter in this book. As far as I am concerned - that makes a book! And keeps it in my library for reference later.
Some great tutorials..... with straight forward directions and photos. Just what you expect from a Melanie Falick/STC Book.....
And some kooky, fun beginner stuff you can make.... quickly and easily.
Very nice artwork, chapter openers, photos. The book seems to have a "Pacific Northwest Hipster" vibe but these projects will work for any age. Trust me --- they are timeless and ageless. I only wish there was some multi-color knitting but perhaps that would be overkill. A girl has got to wish. This book is a keeper! See more photos here on the STC website.
You can buy a signed copy from Daniel - the author - here. Nice to support the author! Or you can order from Amazon here.
