Vintage Baby Knits: More Than 40 Heirloom Patterns from the 1920s to the 1950s
by Kristen Rengren 
Stewart, Tabori and Chang
$27.50 [Hardcover]

Thank you Kristen Rengren for saving me from trying to figure out all those vintage baby pattern that I’ve been collecting for years. I know it’s knitting and I know it’s English but they never made a lot of sense to me.

40ish baby patterns translated into knittable English and made from actual, found-in-yarn-store yarns. The patterns are literally classic in style and substance, originally designed and knit before everything was quick and easy.

They are beautiful, and garments made from fine yarns and don’t overwhelm the little cuties like bulky knits sometimes do. Adorable doesn’t even start to describe the photography. From the very first photo, you’ll be making the nom-nom cheek kissing-snuggling-biting sound.

Knitting In the Sun: 32 Projects for Warm Weather
by Kristi Porter
Wiley Publishing
$22.99
SR= 28-58 inches

I admit, as much as I love to knit, I’m guilty of putting it away when the warm weather starts. The idea of carting around wool in the humidity of a Michigan summer does not appeal to me. Knitting in the Sun may have changed my mind about my lack of a summer hobby.  Yes, it has garments made from traditional summer yarns like cotton and linen for you hot-region knitters. Kicky bathing suit in a cotton/lycra blend – check.  Luscious bamboo tank top with cooling lace panels – check.  What about the wool or alpaca? Consider a reversible lacy tunic top knit from sock yarn on large needles or a cozy oversize cardigan from an alpaca/soy silk blend that is lightweight enough to carry with you everywhere you go during the busy summer months.

I’ve always loved Kristi Porter’s innovative designs. With Knitting in the Sun, she’s managed to corral 16 other designers into offering their best for warm-weather knitting (and wearing) fun, giving you 32 fabulous patterns to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a quick knit or something that will take you a little longer and challenge you as well, you’ll find it here.  Pick the sweet little cloche hat, the surplice top with ruffled sleeves, or the ribbon-tie tunic dress and you’ll sail through your summer well dressed and happy that you can carry your needles everywhere.

Whimsical Little Knits
by Ysolda Teague
£12.00 printed + digital
£10.00 digital only

I'm obviously fond of Ysolda's work, so I was pleased for her when I heard she was self-publishing a book of patterns. When my copy arrived, I found myself instantly adding Ishbel [a half-stockinette, half-lace shawl] to my must-knit list -- and I quickly finished the piece. Love it.

I also love this little book. The photos are of the quality we expect from Ysolda -- clear and crisp, showing important pattern details. The charts are clear and I found absolutely no issues when knitting the Ishbel pattern -- clear and straightforward.

The patterns included in the book will cover your head, shoulders and toes of all ages, and there are a few little friends to knit as well.

The charm of the book can be summed up by the inside cover: a pre-printed bookplate that reads "This book belongs to" and a space to write your name. Which I've already done, since I have much more to knit from within its pages.

The Swift
by Tom Bihn, with help from the readers of Knitty
indigo ballistic nylon and other colors in either ballistic nylon or cordura : $80
cork: $120

[editor's note: Knitty does not profit in any manner from the sale of this bag -- we just helped develop it because we like good bags and because the folks at Tom Bihn are very nice.]

Cool Stuff ItemblankIn 2005, Knitty held a contest and asked for feedback on the perfect knitting bag. What resulted 18 months later was The Swift, also named by Knitty readers.

The geniuses behind this bag are the people of Tom Bihn [yes, there really is a Tom Bihn in charge of the company, and he's a super-nice guy, too]. They make bags of every description, all famous for their quality, durability and function. The Swift is no exception.

The bag is well-sized with shoulder straps that aren't so long that you can't carry the bag in your hand [unless you are wee]. The closure, as requested by Knitty readers, is not a yarn catcher -- it's a button loop system that lets you close the bag loosely, tighter or really snug. It sits nicely at your side if you knit, or you can do as Paul does, and hang it off the arm of your chair.

Cool Stuff ItemblankInside, that's where the Tom Bihn genius really shines. First, there are two quite-large clear pockets, one on each side, that close with a zipper. Perfect for notions, pens, patterns, or purse-type stuff if this becomes a combo bag. There are two rings attached to the bag, and these are fabulous. Why? Because the yarn Stuff Sack [shown at right and included with every Swift] can clip on to one and your keys can clip on to the other.

At left, you see Miko knitting with the Swift on her shoulder, and her yarn supply in the Stuff Sack, which is clipped into the Swift, but hanging outside for convenience. There are many more storage options you can get at Tom Bihn that will clip into the bag -- things like zipper pouches for DPNs or mini-wallets for just the essentials like a few bills, some coins and a card or two. There are so many ways to make the Swift your own that I'm going to direct you to the Swift Flickr group to get an eyeful of examples. You'll find tons of pics of the bags by knitters from all over, in a variety of colors, and from just about every angle.

The original Swift comes in ballistic nylon [smooth and slightly shiny] or cordura [matte and a little textured]. We have found that the cordura tends to attract pet hair, so if you're a cat or dog person, you might want to go with the ballistic fabric.

The newest development is the addition of cork fabric to the exterior of the Swift. Yup, real cork. Cork is farmed by hand, the removal of the cork bark doesn't hurt the tree and a new layer of bark grows back, ready for harvest, in 10 years. There are more facts about this fabric on the cork Swift page [bottom left]. The cork version of the Swift costs more than the ballistic nylon or cordura versions, and understanding how cork is farmed explains why.

My first thought when I saw it, after admiring the uniqueness of the cork itself, was to wonder how durable it would be. To find out, I've been bashing my sample bag around for the last three weeks, being as UNcareful with it as possible, including folding it in half vertically to fit in my scooter's trunk. Not a thing has happened to the cork -- it's a lovely, flexible and soft durable fabric. And very light. It also doesn't attract pet hair, which is a nice bonus.

Is the Swift the perfect knitting bag? Only you can tell if it's perfect for you. But at Knitty, we think it's awesome. It's cleverly designed, very functional, durable, attractive and insanely customizable. Truly unisex, truly does what they say it will do. That's perfect.

Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting: Celebrating the Gift of Knitting with 24 Beautiful Patterns
by Lorna Miser
Watson-Guptill
$24.95 [hardcover]
SR=32 – 60 inches

This collection of knitting patterns is actually a spiritual journey very much like The Five People You Meet in Heaven. In it, Lorna tells stories about people and events that touched her life. The theme of the stories is that we should treasure the people who help us and find the blessings that come from good times and bad.

Each story is the inspiration for a pattern, and I could tell the patterns are meaningful inspirations, designed with care to honor the person or event. The patterns are beautiful and range from baby clothes, toys, sweaters, accessories and even a pattern to make your own knitting needles out of dowels and polymer clay.

My favorite story was of her trip to Scotland where she bought a ball of yarn in every town she could find a LYS and knit one mitered 12-inch square per day with the yarn she found.  The Square-a-Day Blanket pattern is the best take-along project I’ve ever seen! I can’t imagine a more fun way to travel than seeking shops, buying that one special ball of yarn and then the fun of knitting each unique square. This is a spiritual, introspective book as well as a great knitting pattern book.

Amigurumi Knits
by Hansi Singh
Creative Publishing International
$19.99

Amigurumi is not just about crochet. In this book, the creator of Hansigurumi patterns collects some of the most amazing creatures ever knitted.

Along with each detailed pattern is a story about the original creature. Read about the Black-Devil Anglerfish and shudder, just a little. Sea stars, praying mantis, all sorts of backyard insects and -- my favorite -- the Jackalope. A section at the front gives tips to help you get the right kind of fabric. A fabulous book.

One Ball Knits Purses: 20 Stylish Handbags Made with a Single Ball, Skein, Hank, or Spool
by Fatema Habibur-Rahman, Khadija Habibur-Rahman, Hajera Habibur-Rahman
Watson-Guptill
$18.95

What could be more fabulous than purses made from just one ball of yarn? How about the fact that professional finishings and hardware are readily available and you can use them to make these purses look like you got them at an expensive boutique.

The patterns range from clutches and evening bags to satchels and totes. The beginning of the book has easy-to-follow instructions and illustrations of the techniques used in assembling and decorating them. Each purse pattern has detailed instructions on where to find the hardware, how to knit and assemble the purse.  It even has the pattern and sewing instructions for the fabric linings. 

One beautiful bag, the Turquoise Duffel, has a beautiful cable pattern on the front and back; sides and bottom are felted for stability; and the bag is finished with leather handles and silver feet.  Another beauty, the Harvest Moon bag, is knit in a circle, felted and then assembled by folding it in half so that it resembles a luscious half moon.  Finished with gold feet and leather handles, I can imagine being stopped frequently with, “Where did you get that?!”  What more could one want from a purse you made yourself?

Teach Yourself VISUALLY Hand-Dyeing 
by Barbara Parry
Wiley Publishing
$21.99

I’ve just started to play with dyeing yarn and fiber and this book nearly made my head explode with all of the information in it.

Barbara Parry owns Foxfire Fibre and has been dyeing gorgeous yarn and fiber for a long time. Don’t believe me? Go look: foxfirefiber.com, gorgeous, no?

She covers yarn and fiber dyeing,. She covers wooly and cellulose fiber dyeing, kool-aid and acid dyes, color, equipment, preparation, safety, overdyeing, and here’s where my brain overloaded -- 17 techniques of applying dye to yarn or fiber.

Everything is shown in photos, and the book has a --hooray! -- lay flat so you can work with it binding.

Yarn Bowl
by KnitWitch
$30-$45

Yes, this bowl is beautiful, but it’s the details that make it a really useful tool. It has weight; it doesn’t tip. It has felt on the bottom so it won’t scratch or slide across the floor. The yarn notch is cut deeply and at the right angle to hold the yarn in place without trapping it.

Most importantly, it is as smooth as the proverbial baby’s bum. Outside, inside, and all the way into the bottom of the notch, my merino tencel single ply did not catch or snag at any time.

Triangle Tote
by Tilli Tomas
Base 11" x 14"
Bag height without strap 11.5"
Base to top of strap 23
$88 on sale @$45

This bag was given to me to test drive at the big knitting trade show last June. Why haven't I written the review until now? Because it instantly became part of my bag repertoire so quickly that I almost forgot it was a review bag!

This bag is, honestly, gorgeous. Made of two layers of a thick cotton -- the outside and the inside are different colors, which looks great -- it's substantial but not too heavy. Mine has a chino-ish olive cotton on the outside and bright fuschia twill as the lining. Stronger than you can imagine. In fact, this bag went into instant use as my Yarn Roundtable bag, which means I pack it full of the yarn and at least 10 lbs of door-prize books I take to the monthly events. Every month, without fail, people commented on how much they liked it.

Along the wide sides, there are two big pockets, large enough to hold a magazine or pattern. On the short sides, smaller pockets stitched vertically to hold needles or pens or anything tall and thin. No pockets on the inside, but then again -- the bag is reversible. I like the pockets on the outside myself.

You can easily wear it over your shoulder [especially if it's not full of books] but it's also a good length to carry in your hands. It would easily hold an entire sweater or even an afghan in progress AND all the yarn.

At a recent Roundtable, someone spilled coffee on the outside of my bag and I was not happy. I laid it in my biggest sink, washed it with cold water and some gentle soap and the coffee stain came right out. So maybe the surface is scotchgarded...it certainly behaves like it is! I wouldn't put this bag in the washer or dryer, but the handwashing worked fine and I hung it to dry.

Yup, I love this bag and would wholeheartedly recommend it to any fellow bag freak, knitter or not!

Knee-sel
by Nancy's Knit Knacks
$29.95 for either size
Small for leg circumferences 16" to 25"
Large for leg circumferences 24" to 33"
Available in solid navy blue

Like many knitters, I collect gadgets. Lots of gadgets. Some are more useful than others, and some turn out not to be useful at all. The Knee-sel is definitely in the useful category. It comes in two sizes,
(14" to 25" and 24" to 33") and has a Velcro strap that holds it securely around your thigh. There is also a handy little slot on the side for your pen or scissors. The patterns are held in a flap in the front so that they are easy to read without having to look away from your knitting. The time saved, not to mention an absolute lack of neck strain from turning to read charts on the table beside you, is invaluable. It does tend to attract cat hair [especially if you have a at that likes to lie down on your patterns] but it comes off easily with a damp towel or lint remover brush.

Because the back of the Knee-sel only comes up to midway on a piece of paper, patterns do tend to flop around a bit if you are trying to mark off rows at the top of the paper. A great solution is to put your pattern in a plastic sleeve with a cardboard backing. Voila - no flopping. You can also prop it up on a desk and not use the straps at all. The best part is that it folds flat and doesn't take up any room in an already cluttered knitting bag.

Lesson learned though - remember to unstrap it from your leg before you stand up and walk around at your LYS!

When last we saw our heroes….oh wait, I can’t give it away if you haven’t started reading yet! 

This chapter builds on the first one. The characters get more depth. They get to fight crime and there’s a very interesting interaction with the twins and their Mom. This time the knitting pattern is The Net of Justice Bag.

My 10-year-old sometime knitter sums it up this way "Mom, it’s better than the first one. It’s sorta creepy, but exciting. More knitting, too."

Lauren Bag
by Lantern Moon
12”h x 16”w x 5”d
$40.00

After a week of using the Lantern Moon Lauren bag, I can say I love it. I’ve used the bag as a knitting bag. I was a little worried about the seagrass, thinking it might come apart but it's been just fine. It’s very well made and it has a nice black cotton quilted lining and wooden handles.

There are two inside pockets that can hold small things. I can easily fit a medium and small Go Knit pouch inside with whatever patterns I need to go with those projects.

The bag stays upright when I am knitting so the yarn flows without any obstructions. If there was anything I could change about the bag there is only one thing. I would prefer if it had some sort of closure to it – a zippered top or snap. When the bag's empty, it collapses into a nice flat pancake, easy to store.

The Expectant Knitter: 30 Designs for Baby and Your Growing Family
by Marie Connolly
Potter Craft
$27.50 [hardcover]

This is a baby knit book with a twist -- it’s also a pregnancy companion. The chapters are broken down by the three trimesters of pregnancy. Along with several patterns, each section contains a weekly planner for that trimester containing advice and information on a variety of topics including diet, growing baby and general pregnancy woes.

In amongst the patterns there are also interesting topics on diapers, naming the baby and packing your hospital bag. While this is by no means a complete pregnancy week-by-week guide it is a fun way to knit through your pregnancy.

Much thought has been given to the nine months in an Expectant Knitter’s life as the more intricate project patterns are found at the beginning of the book when energy and excitement abound. Patterns for several different sweaters are found here.

This book is not all about baby, and the second trimester section of the book gives way to sweater patterns for big sister and brother, socks for dad, a shawl for mom and even a sweater for the family dog.

The book wraps up just like pregnancy with patterns focusing on preparing for the new baby’s arrival. An Expectant Knitter can satiate those nesting urges by knitting all the baby essentials like wash cloths, bibs, socks and hats for all seasons.

Overall this is a great book with lovely patterns that would make a wonderful gift for an Expectant Knitter or any knitter that enjoys knitting for little ones.

Japanese Inspired Knits

$22.95
SR=33–54 inches

This is not a book of translated patterns from Japanese knitting books. This is a book of original patterns inspired by Japan via the creative brain of Danish designer Marianne Isager. The shaping and construction of the garments are from the Danish side of the designer’s brain, mitred squares, shadow knitting, single-piece construction, not an extraneous or fussy bit to be found. 

For each garment, Isanger, who lives part of the year in Japan, chooses an image that is symbolic to her for each month of the year and layers her interpretation throughout her design.

Riding to the rescue of your spinning sanity is Beth Smith of The Spinning Loft, offering four different Fleece Samplers.

Each Sampler contains 2 ounces of raw, unwashed fleece from a variety of breeds, individually packaged. That’s enough to try a couple of different washing and preparation methods for each breed.

The fleeces that are chosen are exemplary for their breed. The Spinning Loft has been specializing in raw fleece for several years. Each sampler comes with a mini breed exploration class in the form of detailed notes that talk about breed characteristics and spinning recommendations.

Spin Control:
Techniques for Spinning the Yarns You Want

by Amy King
Interweave Press
$22.95

The key word to this packed-to-the-gills spinning book is in the subtitle: You. This book is truly about spinning yarn that you want to make and use.

Amy King presents spinning instruction without even a whiff of 'my way or the highway'. Her approach is 'you want this?- then do this, but hey, try this too'. Because Amy is a dyer, the parts of the book about spinning variegated fiber are particularly brilliant – she shows the effects of particular predrafting styles and plying on color. She explains techniques casually, zero intimidation.

You can have this book at your wheel while you try things from it, with no need to let them percolate through your brain or look up terms. It’s easy, it’s all good, and that’s the way spinning should be.
