New Knitting ...New Knitting Books

I had to give myself a little break after Christmas to rest my hands and wrists. This did not stop the knitting obsession though for arriving daily in the post are wonderful new knitting books.

The above are just a few that have arrived.

I am in love with Boutique Knits!
I can justify buying a knitting book when there are more than 2 patterns I would actually knit. Let me just say I would knit most everything in this lovely little gem.

I began last night the Double Pleated Purse.
The pattern is quick and well written.
I opted away from the Rowan Denim for the recipient is not a really navy blue type.
Am subbing Reynolds "Saucy" cotton in a great taupey, khaki color.
This little purse is worked in 2 pieces and I completed the front last night.
Should have it completed by Sunday with all it's embellishments.

I can't wait to finish it and give it away. How fun!
