Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting

book

This book by Lorna Miser, the founder of Lorna’s Laces (a yarn company), is sweet.

I received this book from Peggy McMullen at the Oregonlive knit blog in exchange for sharing a free pattern for a single skein project. Peggy had a long list of books, and this is the one I chose.

The patterns are nice enough. (I previewed them on Ravelry before choosing my book. What a great tool!) I can see myself knitting several of them. But what I really like are the personal stories that accompany each of the 24 patterns. Many of the designs were originally knit for special people in Lorna’s life, and I enjoy seeing the thoughtful care that went into making these designs reflect something about those people.

Knit on!

  1. I’ll have to check on that book the next time I go to the bookstore. It looks very interesting. Congratulations on winning it. :-)

  2. Oooohhh, I’ll have to check it out when I head to civilization tomorrow. Bookstores, malls, shopping, people…it’s going to be crazy but I’m so excited to be in the big city again!

  3. I saw that on the shelf at B&N and thought about buying it, but never did. Love the idea of the old stories! By the way, you’ve been a very bad influence on me. I’ve gotten it into my head that I absolutely MUST sign up for the Single Skein club (or whatever they call it) there at Twisted. I have no business even thinking about it, but I’m dwelling and now obsessing. I may just have to treat myself!

  4. Ravelry is great for making sure a book has patterns you’d like! This sounds like a nice book – I’ll have to check it out…

  5. Will you bring that to knit night? I’d love to peruse. Are you going tonight?

  6. I’ll have to look into that book :)

  7. Guess what? I’m knitting Pippi. I mentioned it today on PTU, but will post a photo tomorrow or Monday on the blog. :) Love the pattern! I had a dickens of a time finding a fourth color, so I’m trying it with just three… I may decide that it was a bad idea but so far it’s going okay.
