Knitting books are awesome. There is something about eye-candy you can hold in your hand, and they  often have helpful notes on technique, not to mention the patterns!

I use them the same way I use cookbooks; I don't use the recipes exactly, but I use their ideas, take bits and pieces away to sprinkle on other things. Imagine the sorts of inspirational sprinkles you could add to your knitting with some of these in your arsenal!!


Quayside Publishing is giving away four fabulous knitting books, and each of the four winners will also recieve a free Twist Collective pattern of their choosing.




(The Knitter's Palette by Kate Haxell, Icelandic Handknits: 25 Heirloom Techniques and Projects by Hélène Magnùsson, Swedish Handknits: A Collection of Heirloom Designs by Sue Flanders and Janine Kosel, Knitting Clothes Kids Love by Kate Oates and Nancy Langdon)
