Upcoming Knitting Books, September 2008

Here’s a look at some of the new knitting books on the horizon. I’m more excited about some of them than others, but … wow, what a list. I just wish I could buy them all. (Of course, since I can’t, you will NOT be getting reviews of all of them. Just so you know.)

Now–long as this list is, there’s no way I’ve covered all of them. If there’s a book you know that’s not on the list, just drop me a comment and I’ll add it.

    Alt-fiber is already out! I saw it at B&N a week or two ago. Didn’t have time to look at it in-depth, however. And I’m calling you an enabler because I just couldn’t stop myself from buying Custom Knits. LOL

    I’ll get to purchase my first Christmas gift in September…a knitting book for me! Right now I’m looking at the Vogue book on Shawls.
    Thanks for the heads up!!!
