And... here I am again with another book review!
I randomly chose a winner from last week's book giveaway. Congratulations to Sangeetha!
For this week I will be reviewing and giving away this copy of Vogue Knitting Knitopedia
provided by Sixth and Spring books!
And what an amazing book it is too!
This is a fabulous all around reference book for knitters of all levels. It is a thorough, very well written encyclopedia of all things knitting. And what I really appreciated is that it is not just text, but many of the words include pictures too! There are basic knitting terms, as well as obscure knitting related words that Ive never even heard of before. Inside you will find explanations and definitions for techniques, ethnic knitting traditions, history, fibers, and even knitwear designers!
Um.. on a side note.. I did look up Alana Dakos in there.. and didn't find a listing... but that's ok. :)
Maybe someday though, right?
I found this book to be extremely interesting and very informative. I think it would be beneficial for any knitter to have in their library. I could see this being an absolute "cant-live-without" resource for a beginner especially.
So.. since I am so nice and all, I will be giving away this copy of Knitopedia to one of you readers.
To enter to win, please leave a comment under this blogpost that includes your contact information.

Ill be announcing the winner next week with one final book review.
So please check back then to see if you are the winner!
Since I've started these reviews on my blog, I've been working on some projects behind the scenes!
I look forward to sharing them with you soon! :)
