Another Book To The List!

Middlefield Pullover

Groveland Satchel

Fairfield Sweater

Brattleboro Hat

Greenfield Cardigan

Montague Bulky Lace Vest

Windsor Warmer
Today at knitting group we had the pleasure of seeing some new knitting books!  This one, New England Knits,  intriuged me as one of the other ladies is going to knit one of the cardigans in it for her niece.  I thought I would have a browse and after loving nearly every pattern in it I decided to borrow it.  I came home and checked on some books sites and ended up using some credits and a bit of cash to buy my very own copy.  I have to say that I love just about every pattern in this book and have plans to knit a hoodie from it for my sister too.  I havent shown you all the faves as the photos were just taking so long to load up for some reason.  This book seems to have a great range of sizes in it and some beautiful designs also.  I am hoping that next year will be more about adult knits rather than nearly all kids knits as the baby basket is starting to get full so I will start emptying it a bit before I decide on any new ones unless I have a special request from my SIL for my nephews.  She loved the little knitted sweaters by the way so I am very happy!  Okay off to read and put a few faves on ravelry.

I have seen these patterns around and they are lovely. I think I noticed the hat, being green!! Isn't it nice when you find a book and it is full of patterns that you love?? I shall look forward to your 2011 grown up knitting!!

It's a great book isn't it - I bought it just for the Greenfield cardi, but there are a bunch of others I'd make too!

It's a awesome book! I picked up a copy 3 weeks ago when one of the big chain book stores was offering a 1 day 50% off coupon. Score!
