New book, new pattern,

new year, new lace:
Promises to be a very pretty whisper of a scarf knit in Kidsilk Night.

One of many very beautiful patterns from this book that hopefully will encourage me to use up some luxurious single skeins being saved for something special. Maybe it will just help me to buy single skeins of something other than sock yarn when I'm in my dazed and confused "I'm in a yarn shop" state. Win win.There are so many patterns I'm sure most people would find things they'd like to knit in here and they cover a good range of projects given the one skein limitation.

I don't love the way the photos are all in one section at the front but I guess that was a way to control costs but still incorporate a full colour photo for each of the projects.
I do love the grouping of the patterns according to the weight of yarn. Very handy.

I have picked up and put back that book many times - maybe I should reconsider. I too think the grouping by weights is brilliant.

What a lovely looking book! I've added it straight to my wishlist. Your scarf looks beautiful.

Marianne said...

How Lovely! your new lace :^)
Hmm, I will also need to check into this book, that bison shawlette is pretty, as are those cashmere socks!
First I'll check the library system, usually if I check a book out and have to return it in 2 weeks, depending on the level of pain turning it back in gives me a good idea if I need it in my personal library, :^D

what a gorgeous scarf - and the other patterns look great. I must get this book!

I've always steered away from one skein books, I'm not sure why though - I suppose I don't want any more encouragement to just buy one more skein!! But that is a gorgeous scarf pattern (I am such a sucker for knitted leaves!). It will be just lovely in the KSH!

I rarely buy single skeins of anything (except sock yarn and laceweight). Nevertheless, that book looks very tempting! I look forward to seeing your completed scarf.

Charity said...

What a nice book! I've checked it our of my library before, and really enjoyed it.

Rachel said...

Not seen this book before...looks like some great projects. And wow...that scarf really will be whisper light!

I am loving your new book! Kidsilk is the most luscious yarn in the world, isn't it? It looks lovely :D
Hope you had a great weekend!

I got that same book for Xmas!

I'm hoping it will help me use up some of the strays from my Kemps orders.

Probably next year though as I must stop knitting accessories this winter. I'm in hat & scarf overload!

Another book to add to my wishlist!

I love the little shawlette piccie... it looks yummy. :)

Looks like a good book! Love your Rowanspun shawl, one yarn I heartily wish was not discontinued! Ball winders are soooo useful too, glad you invested in one - that plus a swift = a huge timesaver :-)

Linda said...

New year, luscious lace! Thats great knitting. I like the look of that book.

Looks like a great book! I have to force myself away from the sock yarn when buying a single skein... it's just so tempting.

bellsknits said...

ooh it's awfully pretty! I think you will get a lot of enjoyment out of that book!

Caffeine Girl said...

I bought the book for the same reasons as you. I'd like to knit with something other than fingering weight sometimes!

Lovely book and that scarf is beautiful! So delicate, feathery and feminine looking. Can't wait to see what it will look like finished.
