Veronik Avery's new book is great. She knows lots of us love to knit, but also have busy lives. Knitting 24/7 recognizes this tension and is a series of small, easy to do patterns that are easily stopped and started and many of which are portable for knitting at soccer, in a line, on your commute or any time you have an extra five minutes.
The patterns show off Veronik's classic style and vary in difficulty and object: hats, shawls, mittens, scarves, bags, vests, sweaters and things for the house. All of them are very pretty; there's lots in this book I want to knit.
And I have to say, I love this skirt. The details are so pretty on it. Wanties.
A variety of yarns are used including Veronik's own St. Denis which I'm using to knit the Cabled Beret from her book.
The publisher asked me to be part of a Knitting 24/7 knit along and it'll be fun to have a small project that's not socks and try the St. Denis yarn.
