It seems that this year, there has been a resurgence of popular and much-loved knitting books that are finally back in print! Kelley shares how learning to spin led her down the path of knitting and the books that passed on endless amounts of techniques and knowledge. Kelley then reviews four of her favorite books that are finally back in print and ready to be enjoyed by a new generation of knitters: Aran Knitting, The Book of Fair Isle Knitting, and Charts for Color Knitting, all of which are by Alice Starmore as well as Knitting Around the Word by Lela Nargi. Finally, Kelley catches up with all of the “distractions” that have been making her such a productive knitter.

Knitting in the Old Way by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts
Knitter's Almanac, The Commemorative Edition by Elizabeth Zimmerman
Aran Knitting by Alice Starmore
Book of Fair Isle Knitting by Alice Starmore
