Holiday Gift Wish List : Books

Have they been naughty or nice? Some ideas for gifts for the Crafty Person in your life! (these are on my wish list;-)

Beyond-the-Square Crochet Motifs: 144 circles, hexagons, triangles, squares, and other unexpected shapes by Edie Eckman

Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines: Patterns, Stories, Pictures, True Confessions, Tricky Bits, Whole New Worlds, and Familiar Ones, Too by Kay Gardiner & Ann Shayne

The Knitter's Book of Yarn: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing, Using, and Enjoying Yarn by Clara Parkes

Knitting Through It: Inspiring Stories for Times of Trouble by Lela Nargi

and this very special yarn ---handspun and hand dyed--so lovely to knit with! from SPINCYCLE YARN --I first encountered this yarn made by some lovely young women from Bellingham, Wa @ the Bellingham Farmer's Market--and I fell in love with it at first sight--then I knit a hat from it and I was hooked!

and the colorways are beautiful--this is just one example---they have many to choose from--so do visit their website.
