3 Books to Make…Something Different!

We love knitting and crochet books around here. From our newest book of small accessories Petite Presents,  to crochet books new to our shelves, we love to browse and use pattern books to make items to keep or give away. We also, however, love books about crafts we’ve never considered trying before. Here are 3 new books with some creative ideas, new techniques, and adorable patterns you might like to try. Go out of your comfort zone and pick one up (now for 40% off in our book sale) and create things you never considered before!


Knitless is a collection of fun projects that can be completed by crafters of all skill levels. From the adorable coasters, pillow, and lamp shade pictured on the front, to stationary items, clock faces, and chair covers, you’ll have brand new ideas for every skein of yarn you own. Perfect for knitters who also love other mediums, Knitless is a winner for non-knitters as well!


Do you like the idea of weaving, but don’t want the added expense of a loom? Finger Weaving: Scarves and Wraps gives you full instructions on how to make scarves, wraps, and even pillow covers for the whole family. There’s a black and white checkered scarf that really caught my eye, and full color photographs make the instructions clear and simple. Find small projects for using up yarn ends, and double up worsted weight skeins for dramatic, fashion-forward looks!


Speaking of using your hands, finger knitting has been taken to new levels in this book Knitting Without Needles. From rugs and floor poufs,to tote bags and wearables, thirty patterns take you through steps to move your hands in new ways and make things you never thought possible!

Sometimes, in a brand new calendar year, it’s fun to look through books of  new-to-you crafts, with very different techniques. These are books to interest, inspire, and delight. At 40% off all books in stock, why not try one out? It just might set you off on a new creative journey, for 2016.
