I have another cool book to review:
This is Wanderlust: 46 Modern Knits for Bohemia Style by Tanis Gray, Interweave/F+W; $18.99
It is available now, so you can grab it in either paperback or eBook format.
An interesting twist: all of the projects in this book are knit from the same yarn: Cascade Yarns Longwood, which is an aran weight superwash merino yarn. Looking at the yarn’s Ravelry page, I can see that it comes in a wide variety of pretty colors.
The book has a great variety of patterns from a lot of designers whose names you will recognize. You can check out all the patterns on Ravelry, here.
Some of my favorites:
“Motif Mittens” designed my Angela Hahn. These take just one skein of Cascade Longwood and being aran weight, would be pretty quick to knit — great for last minute gifts, or maybe to get a jump on next year’s gifting season?
And this is the “Winter Waves” hat designed by Melissa LaBarre. Again, just one skein needed to complete!
There are also bigger projects:
This is the gorgeous Snoqualmie Wrap by Beth Kling.
Ann Weaver’s wonderful Lady Gansey cardigan.
With a total of 46 patterns in this one book, it is definitely good value.
Now, who’d like my review copy?
