Little Red in the City to be precise *grins*
Ok, maybe it's cheating a little bit, but my book arrived at the weekend and I wanted to share ;)
I pre-ordered it when I saw a fantastic post on Ysolda's blog about what to expect from the book. As a result, despite having so few patterns, it became my must have purchase.
For those who don't know, the premise of the book is:
So it has sections on prep, techniques and patterns. The prep section is hugely informative, so I haven't really scratched the surface yet, but there is a lot of information on choosing a yarn for a project (very useful as I rarely use the recommended yarn) and how to make things actually fit.
There's a lot of maths for that last part *grimaces*
I hate maths. But it looks fairly simple, I hope, and making things fit well has got to be motivation enough to ignore my maths hatred ;)
It's a gorgeous book, with some gorgeous details, I love the "this book belongs to page", it feels like being a kid with a special book again *grins*
And I utterly adore the little bookmark/ruler tucked inside...
So cute :)
I can't wait to get stuck into this book properly. In fact I have already swatched for Cria, using the Jaeger Monte Cristo yarn that boyfriend's mum gave me. Just need to get my exact measurements before I start (and being patient is not fun for me!)
