It is Valentine's Day and so I thought I should do something for all of you who are still reading here. I've got a great chance to win the brand new Vogue Knitting Ultimate Knitting Book.
This is the third edition of this "must have" book for serious or not so serious knitters. It's amazing to think that the fine folks at Soho have published this book in three different versions. But then when I think about it - what knitters knit and are interested in changes so much over the years. Who better to update such information than the women who work at the top of the industry. Remarkable too to know that it has sold more than 1,000,000 copies in its different versions! WOW. That is a book that is in a lot of knitter's libraries.
This new edition of the Vogue Knitting Ultimate Knitting Book includes beautifully illustrated how-to illustrations with complete and clear instructions on how to tackle each technique - and there are hundreds of them. It is a fantastic resource for sure.
The Vogue Knitting Ultimate Knitting Book is split up into different sections like in the past and covers anything a new or experienced knitter might have a question about.
The sections I found interesting - because they are new to the book and more representative of what knitters are making now are:
Designing Sweaters - including how to measure yourself to knit to fit
Directional Knitting - for those of you want to knit every which way - FUN!
Accessory Designing - how to design hats, mittens, gloves, etc.
Shawl Knitting - to follow the trend that seems to not stop
I'm going to hold on to the two other versions of VK Knitting Book and will place this one on my library shelves next to them. Thanks Trisha, Carla, Diane, and crew for working so hard and keeping the craft relevant.

I knit mostly charity hats, but would love to learn fair isle and how to make socks or sweaters that fit. Thanks so much for your continuing inspiration, Kristin.
