I'm very pleased to announce that we have made a free preview available online.
And if this works, embedded here...
Beyond Knit & Purl -- Kate Atherley
It's a few select pages, the table of contents, and some of the project photos. I hope it gives you a sense of why I'm proud of it, and why people I respect an awful lot are saying nice things about it...
And perhaps if you like it, you might wish to buy it.. ?
The coffee cup cozy in the picture is the Mini Project for the cables chapter. It's a quick and easy way to try out a cable for the first time... an evening's worth of knitting, not a huge investment of time, and a great confidence builder. And it's useful! I do recommend you knit it in a yarn that matches how you take your coffee. Mine is a very dark shade of espresso brown...
All the sections - Shaping, In the Round, Socks, Cables, Lace and Colorwork have these Mini Projects. And three other projects, too, to allow you to expand your skills.
(Once again, awesomely fab pic thanks to Caro Sheridan. She even brought the coffee cup with her from Boston when she flew up to Toronto to do the photography.)
