My family often uses my knitting wish list to inspire their shopping, and this year, I was lucky! Not one, but two knitting books to enjoy!

Bristol Ivy’s “Knitting Outside the Box”

Alanna Nelson knits from Arne Carlos Bird book

My holiday knitting this year was light, and although I”m heads down into Emily Greene’s Divide Pullover , you can bet I’ll be whistling while I knit up and day dream with these wonders!

Books and knitting – two very lovely gifts that keep on giving!
