And possibly even uncooler than that addiction, is the hope I've always had that someone sometime would send me craft books to read and review on my blog.
Open Road Media released a whole lot of craft books as ebooks and thought we (you and I) might be interested in this new way of reading and following patterns.
Their press release says this; At Open Road Media, we’re working around the movement that increasing numbers of knitters want to be able to read patterns and instructions on their ereaders, tablets, and smartphones—especially those who knit during their commutes or who carry their knitting projects with them, and don’t want to have to use knitting needles to hold their page in a print book while they’re knitting on the go. For those just learning to knit, having knitting ebooks on their gadget of choice helps them use their idle time to learn more about knitting!
Knitting 24/7 by Veronik Avery.
A book of stylish knits with uncomplicated patterns designed for knitters on-the-go who have five minutes here or ten minutes there to knit.
(So many cute patterns I don't know where to start).
Knitted Socks East and West by Judy Sumner
Viva Poncho by Christina Stork and Leslie Barbazette
A book of versatile, comfortable, stylish patterns for ponchos for all seasons
(You know I am all about bringing the poncho back).
Knitting For Baby by Kristin Nicholis
Tapping into our innate desire to knit for babies, with the first patterns in the book teaching simple stitches and the fundamentals of knitting, and patterns that increase in complexity as knitters work through the book.
(Knitting teeny, tiny, quick things is such a great way to learn I think).
Knits Men Want by Bruce Weinstein
Far too many women spend their time, energy, and resources knitting things for men that men don’t want to wear. Author Bruce Weinstein offers humorous rules to create knits men want
(I so should have chosen this one because my farmer boy is HASSLING me to knit for him).
Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark
