If you are looking for some book inspiration then today's vlog is just the ticket. Lisa takes us through some of her favourite books for knitters and crocheters, all available in store or on line. https://youtu.be/QGKV56ZzF04 First up is the stunning Knitting Outside the Box - Drape and Fold by Bristol Ivy. This follow up to 2017's Knitting Outside the Box is filled with innovative ways of working with knitted fabric by exploring drape and fold. Next up and perfect for the beginner crocheter is Erika Knight's Crochet Workshop. Packed full of gorgeous projects including accessories, homewares and even jewellery - each project will teach you a new stitch, technique or trick. If you are welcoming a new little one into your life then you might like to pick up the book First Knits by the always wonderful Debbie Bliss. Catering for all your baby’s knitwear needs, First Knits includes everything from snuggly baby blankets, irresistible tops, cosy sweaters, a cute romper, little bootees and much more. Each project is knitted in classic yarns that are not only soft and gentle against young skin, but are also practical and easy to wash and care for. If it is shawl inspiration you are looking for then Melanie Berg's new book Colourwork Shawls as well as its predecessor Shawls: Knit in Style are packed full of beautiful projects. And last but not least is the new book from Kerry Lord. Edwards's Menagerie: The New Collection has 50 new animal designs which re suitable for beginners through to experienced crocheters.
