Book review - Keep calm and cast on

Hi all,
Once again i was lucky enough to recieve a book to review, this time it was a little book called Keep calm and cast on by Erika Knight (Quadrille Publishing).

This little book it loverly. It has a fabric cover in a dark lavender colour (sorry i'm abit blokey when it comes to naming colours!), giving me an immediate urge to pick it up and open it. The cover made it very textureable, giving it a wonderful feel, like old books have and very inkeeping with the title. 

This is obviously a book for knitters, and would make a fantastic little gift for knitters new and old (and by old i mean they've been knitting for a while not that they are elderly!). As usual i've lent it to my mum who says it has some fantastic tips in it as well as those little quotes that are fun and true and often very full of meaning.
So if your after a little gift or stocking filler (its not that far away now you know!) for knitters you can't go far wrong with this book.

  1. I just love the look of it! It would look brilliant as an ornament - which is what most of my books are anyway! lol!

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog, it made me chuckle out loud!
    Haven't seen that book, might have to go and have a snoop!


Your comments are alway welcome, i know they take you time, i appreciate each one because, the smile they bring is mine.
