In My Knitting Basket




I seem to have the same projects in my knitting basket as before but I have managed to add one new project, a caplet!


I also had the latest issue of Interweave Crochet fall into my basket.  I could not resist a few of the designs in this issue, especially the Apres Ski Poncho by Amy Gunderson and the Tunisian Crescent Shawlette by Juliette Bezold.

The little book tucked in front of my magazine is a pristine 1915 edition of  How to Knit Socks by Maud Churchill Nicoll.  I am such a sucker for vintage and antique knitting books and when I found this book on eBay, I simply could not resist buying it and snapped it up for a wonderful price considering most go for over $100.                   
I honestly do not think it's ever been opened or used.  It's in pristine condition and has so many wonderful tips, photos and more.  I look forward to making a pair of socks from a pattern that is included.

Now I must find another book she wrote called Knitting and Sewing, published in 1918.  The hunt begins!!!



Until next time ~ be creative!
