Another new book has found its way to the Hillsborough Yarn Shop: Knits of a Feather, by Celeste Young.
As its title suggests, Knits of a Feather is a collection of bird-themed accessories and garments.
A variety of knitting techniques are represented, including beading, cables, lace, duplicate stitch, and colorwork. Young pairs information about these techniques with the patterns that use them, and includes photos of what the work looks like in progress–tremendously helpful when learning a new skill. I was also pleased to see that the charts in this book are large enough to read easily, without making a trip to a copy shop to enlarge them.
You’ll find Knits of a Feather on the teacart, with the newest books and magazines. See you at the shop!
