This week is my blog’s 2nd birthday and my ??th birthday. I was very lucky and received thoughtful gifts, money and flowers! Here are the flowers.

I also received The Knitting Book by Frederica Patmore and Vikki Haffenden. I haven’t had a chance to read it in depth yet but I have to say it has the clearest illustrations of knitting I have ever seen. It also seems to be extremely compehensive. I’ve been knitting for many years and have tackled all sorts of projects from knitting Fairisle in the round to Kaffe’s interarsia methods and, more recently, lace and there’s still heaps I can learn from this book.

And speaking of Kaffe, my daughter bought me The Color Guys by Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably. A real feast for knitting eyes! If you’re interested in either of these books, click on the title link (affiliate link but it costs you nothing) and it’ll take you to the Book Depository which I have found has the best prices.
