Craft Book Month – Socks from the Toe Up

When Lindsay asked me to take part in a blog hop for Craft Book month over at Craft Buds I immediately pulled a stack of books I’ve got projects marked in. It was a decent stack.

And these are only the ones I had hanging out in my bedroom, it doesn’t count the stack in my studio that are all marked.

Since I had knitting on my mind, I decided to focus on a couple of knitting books that got me out of my “I can knit a mean scarf and nothing else” phase.

Pattern Review: Perfectly Pleated Clutch by Amy Butler
