A picture of a knitting book called Sockmas which has many little red, green and white socks on the cover

Episode 13, Knitting books everywhere

February 14th, 2022

This week I’m talking about knitting books because there is so much in them that we either don’t know is there or forget to look at! I also talk about stitch dictionaries and how you can pick out your favourites from them.

Some of my favourite stitch dictionaries:

  • Norah Gaughan’s Knitting Cable Sourcebook
  • AlterKnit Stitch Dictionary by Andrea Rangel
  • Knitting Brioche Lace by Nancy Marchant
     

And an apology to Mary Jane Mucklestone whose books I attributed to Ann Kingstone. Both designers have beautiful colourwork books but it was Mary Jane’s Fair Isle Designs & 150 Scandinavian Knitting Designs that I talked about in the podcast.

In a future episode I’ll talk about adding a stitch from a dictionary to a specific pattern!

Now lovelies, I’m away. Next week I’ll be talking to the amazing Abby Parkes of Orchidean Luxury Yarns who is joining me for the inaugural Desert Island Knits!

Take care lovelies and get knit done!
