So... I'm going to attempt to redeem myself here for the slithery photos in my last post with some dazzling... glamorous... finished knits.
Okay... to be honest, they're not my photos. Actually, they aren't even my finished knits. But I hope to start working my way through at least a few of them soon!
I'm talking about Wendy's new book, Custom Knits.
It is fabulous! The designs are, of course, stunning... gorgeous... versatile... and more. But beyond the great knits, she provides a wealth of information on customizing the patterns, taking measurements, and unique tips. She includes the basic raglan, perfect Malabrigo turtleneck, and simple cardigan as well as... well, here... I'll show you a few.
(I have the yarn in my stash for this!)
(Hmmm.... I should knit one of these right away while it's still summer.)
And this one is extra special to me...
because it is one of my finished knits. It's a variation on one of her patterns that Wendy asked me to knit for the book. I am bother honored and thrilled that I was able to help out.
I had the chance to see several of these knits when she was working on them so I knew the patterns were going to be fantastic, but I'm just blown away at the overall quality of the book. You need this on your bookshelf. Really!
