New Book in the Guild's Library

Annette Douglass has graciously donated "The Principles of Knitting: Methods and Techniques of Hand Knitting" by June Hemmons Hiatt. The book is packed with information and would be a valuable resource for any serious knitter. Please note that books from our library can be lent to guild members only.

Review from Library Journal:
This is a comprehensive handbook for the knitter who wants to know the "whys" as well as the "hows" of hand-knitted fabric construction. Included are chapters on stitch formation, fabric construction, pattern design, project planning, and decorative work (e.g., multi-color knitting, inlay, and needlework embellishment). Superior organization, layout, indexing, and the numerous illustrations add to the value of this work as a basic knitting reference, but the beginning knitter may be intimidated by the sheer bulk of material presented--including, for example, 33 different methods for casting on stitches. A less intimidating introduction to the craft is Maggie Righetti's Knitting in Plain English ( LJ 3/15/86). Highly recommended for libraries collecting in this area.
