Looking for a new source for knitting patterns and information about knitting? Try the Des Moines Public Library (www.dmpl.org). The library is always adding new books on this subject. A recent item is Ultimate Mittens by Robin Hansen is available in our system. This book contains 28 classic patterns for mittens. I know many of you are fans of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s Yarn Harlot blog. All Wound Up is her current collection of knitting essays and fun to read anytime. Vogue Knitting Knitopedia is an interesting collection of all things knitting. It’s fun to just flip through this book and read things that don’t usually come up in our pattern directions. Chris Shelton will have these books and some others on display at our next meeting.
In addition Cindy Griese will talk about her trip to Norway with Arnhild.
Please come join us and do some relaxing knitting after the flurry of getting fair entries finished, blocked and delivered!
