I was on a lucky streak with blog contests a few weeks ago and won this beautiful book compliments of Rachel at http://cattywampus.typepad.com/my_weblog/ I'm so thrilled to have a copy. Thanks Rachel!! As you can see, it's the new Clara Parkes book all about yarn and it's absolutely wonderful!! Not only is it packed with a wealth of information about YARN, one of my favorite things... it also has some great patterns (40 of them). And it just a pretty book! Very nicely done. I highly recommend it. As a newer knitter, I often struggle with picking the right yarn for my projects and this book is going to help me immensely. I love it. It's my new bedtime reading.
