A Handknit Romance.
A new book arrived from Interweave this week: Jennie Atkinson's A Handknit Romance: 22 Vintage Designs with Lovely Details.
The first thing I noticed in this book was the use of Swans Island Organic Merino Fingering yarn. The mere mention of Swans Island tends to stop me in my tracks, that I might join in gushing over their spectacular yarn.
Those of you who appreciate fine yarns at small gauges will appreciate A Handknit Romance, especially if you have a fondness for traditional feminine details. Take a look next time you're in the shop.
