This month, our Book of the Month is coming specially from the publishers and their MAKEetc shopping website. This is why you can find the details here in the Blog and not in our usual Shop.
This is the new book from Nicki Trench – Colour Block Knits. It is bursting full of 35 beautiful projects with Nicki Trench’s vibrant knitting patterns. We have it at a special price of £10 for the book and you will get free P&P in the UK. There will be a charge for p&p outside the UK
The projects in the book are knitted with cake yarns and color wheels. These are popping up everywhere and their popularity is no surprise. They make sewing in yarn ends at every colour change a thing of the past. They are also available in every shade of the rainbow. And because they usually contain two or three large stretches of contrasting colours, the effect is more dramatic than the repeated shade changes in variegated yarns. But knitting with cakes and colour wheels lends itself better to some makes than to others. So throws and shawls can often be made from one large cake, while scarves and hats are perfect makes for smaller and finer yarns.
To make the most of these exciting products, Nicki Trench has specially designed 35 projects, including homewares, accessories, makes for babies and things to wear, and many of them will only take one ball of yarn to make.
