New Books Are In...

New and old tried and trued books just arrived.

After 50 years of knitting, Sally Melville has become a guru of classic styles and form-flattering knits. In Mother Daughter Knits she collaborates with her daughter to deliver a book full of fresh designs for knitters of all ages, skill levels, and body types. Mother Daughter Knits contains 30 detailed and easy-to-follow patterns for garments and accessories such as a slimming Jackie Kennedy-style Camelot Coat and a reversible tank top with a scoop neck that can be worn in the front or the back.

Enjoying resurgence in popularity thanks to the current trend of DIY crafts, the hand spindle remains one of the most productive, versatile, and convenient tools for creating stunning fiber arts from home, as this beautifully illustrated guide from a veteran spinner and spindle aficionado demonstrates. With step-by-step instructions, this essential manual details the basic steps of spinning and then advances to the more complicated spinning wheel, showing how to use the spindle to make specific types of yarn, explaining traditional spindle spinning techniques, and detailing five simple projects designed to instill confidence in creating a variety of yarns with this simple tool. Combining fascinating historical narratives, traditions, and cultures from around the globe with vivid photography, this all-encompassing tour of the spindle also boasts easy-to-follow, contemporary techniques and styles that affirm the tool's enduring legacy.
