Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fall in love with knitting I absolutely love this book. If you can't hand knit, then this book will make you want to learn. The book contains 12 projects, a mixture of colourwork and 3D shape designs. There is a little house doorstop, as featured on the title sequence of 'Kirstie's Homemade Home' that is so quirky and once you have knitted that you can make a giant house, which can be used as a bean bag. There is a lovely scarf to knit with knitted eyes, inspired by a Beryl Cook exhibition with hand warmers to match. I want to knit everything- but then I am the designer and author! 20 November 2012
