New Books for Knitters and Crocheters

Two new books for knitters are on the shelves:

75 Floral Blocks to Knit by Lesley Stanfield
The Big Book of Knitted Monsters: Mischievous, Lovable Toys by Rebecca Danger

Seriously, how can you resist something like this?

Here's a combination book for both knitters and crocheters:

75 Seashells, Fish, Coral, & Colorful Marine Life to Knit and Crochet by Jessica Polk

And finally, one just for crocheters:

Clever Crocheted Accessories: 25 Quick Weekend Projects edited by Brett Bara

These are all in the new book section for the time being.  If any of them are left on the shelf by Thursday evening, they will be available in the meeting room during Knit Night.

Happy crafting,

Some Recent Projects

The smaller pieces are crocheted.  The afghan is knitted in simple garter stitch using two strands on large needles.

The yellow and brown one is done in Bavarian crochet with adaptations.

I hope this gives you some ideas for your own projects.

Happy crafting,
