Knit Pickin' - Pretty Book
I've not posted any this week as I have been busy prepping for a yard sale we're holding this weekend. It's been quite the task going through all kinds of stuff to decide what goes, what stays and how much things should cost if they end up in the 'go' pile...and there are LOTS of 'go piles'. Will finish it all up tomorrow and the big sale is on Saturday. Hope it ALL goes. I don't want to haul ANY of it back into the house!
In the meantime, I thought I'd take a break and pop in for a minute to give you a peek into my favorite knitting book. I have lot's of knitting books, but this one is by far my favorite. Probably a fave of some of you too.
This is Morehouse Farm. Margrit Lorher and her husband Albrecht live in upstate New York and own and operate a Merino sheep farm that produces the wool for the fabulous yarns they make and sell. This book is really beautiful in it's photos and the story of how Morehouse Farm came to be.
It's definitely a story book....and I still love 'story books'.
My copy of this book is rather dog eared as I've looked at it A LOT the last couple of years. I love it and have used it so much!
My cheesy camera does not do these beautiful pictures any justice whatsoever. Just take my word for it when I say 'beautiful'. Margrit has all kinds of great projects in the book also - all of which I hope to complete someday, one at a time.
...and have a knit pickin' good weekend too!
