Three new books.

Three new books arrived from Interweave this week: Knitting Outside the Swatch, by Kirstin Omdahl, Op-Art Socks, by Stephanie van der Linden, and Cozy Knits: 50 Fast & Easy Projects from Top Designers.


Kristin Omdahl’s Knitting Outside the Swatch presents 40 knitted motifs with ideas for how to join them together in various ways to various ends.


These motifs could become garments, blankets, embellishments, or edgings–knitter’s choice.


Stephanie van der Linden’s Op-Art Socks: Creative Effects in Sock Knitting is a collection of sock patterns featuring knitted optical illusions. Adventurous sock-knitters, take note!


Cozy Knits is all about knitted accessories like hats, scarves, mittens, which use a wide variety of techniques.


As varied as the patterns are, the yarns called for are all worsted or bulky weight, making for quick knitting and, as the title suggests, warm and cozy results.
