Books, books, books!
Finally, they have arrived! I put in my order February 6th, and I've got them "already",from Amazon.co.uk. That's not on the other side of the world! But it doesn't matter. I love them!!
1: Intertwined by Lexi Boeger. Came across this book at Bloggspinner, another Norwegian spinner who's yarn is featured in the book!
And what a book! 300 pages of pure inspiration for the novelty and artyarn spinner. She spins everything. And by that I mean EVERYTHING. One of my favourites is an old AC/DC tape spun together with a commercial yarn. This felted sushi isn't too bad either. This will lay on my nightstand for a very, very long time. I even think I have to bring it with me on vacation next week!
2:Doodle-Stitching by Aimee Ray.
The cutest and most naive stitcheries, just my cup of tea! The author's got a great blog as well
3:Creative Spinning by Alison Daykin and Jane Deane
They're inspired by nature, and have taken the colors of it, and put it into handspun yarn in various qualities. Great pictures!
4: AlternaCrafts by Jessica Vitkus. Many projects, using many different materials. I fell completely in love with the button mosaic flowerpots. A great book for the not so experienced knitter wanting to learn too.
5: The Crafter's Companion, editor Anna Torborg
Subtitle: "tips, tales and patterns from a community of creative minds"
Lots of great stuff in this. It's my Eastern reading, I love to read about designers and how they get inspired. The projects are a big bonus too.
