400 Knitting Stitches

400 Knitting Stitches: A Complete Dictionary of Essential Stitch Patterns is a lovely book filled with unique swatches that will make you oooh and ahhh! The price is right too!

I have a few other stitch dictionaries that I thought were pretty good, until I bought this. Those pale in comparison.  Every pattern is both written and charted and there are some really cool ideas in here.

The book is broken into 6 sections: Knit-Purl Stitches, Crossed Stitches & Cables, Slipped Stitches, Lacy Stitches, Fancy Stitches, and Double Stitches.

     

Highly Recommend this one!

I went to the LYS yesterday to pick up some needles

But I walked out with this

Malabrigo Sock Yarn in Ochre. This is going to be swatched up using one of the stitch patterns from the book. I don’t know which one yet, there are so many good ones to choose from!

And Madelinetosh TOSH Merino Light in Antique Lace. This has a nice silvery sheen that is very elegant.  I know just what I’m making with it, but more on that another day!
