Not that kind of crafty, knitting crafty. I’m not always reading mysteries or working on mine. I have to spend some time on my many crafts. I just read an advance reader’s copy of Knit Christmas Stockings, 2nd Edition: 19 Patterns for Stockings & Ornaments and I can’t wait to get out the needles. The presentation is attractive. There are some adorable stockings. And the directions are easy to understand. What more do you want out of a knitting book? There is one stocking with snowmen that I can’t wait to start on. I’m a very advanced knitter, I can do bobbles and cables in my sleep, but the patterns in this are ones any knitter can handle. I can’t share any pictures of the patterns because it is an ARC and changes may be made but you can go on over to Amazon and preorder the book now. Then you’ll get it in September and have time to have some great, unique stockings for the family in time to hang them on Christmas Eve. And I’ll be sure to post the stockings I have made.
