Knitting Everyday Finery Practical Designs for Dresssing Up in Little Ways

Knitting Everyday Finery is the second book by Mel Clark and is a complete success.

Featuring 26 total patterns, there are many beautiful designs in this worthwhile book.

Perhaps you are looking to use the more summer friendly, Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton. You’re in luck, the Barcelona Hood & Scarf uses four hanks.

Or there is the Anna’s Hair Band, a one hank wonder in Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk. As someone that likes to wear headbands, this is a favorite project of mine.

With other fun projects including funky bags, great hats, fun mitts, and beautiful scarves, this book is an excellent addition to any knitting library. (It even has a pair of tights!).

We have three copies to giveaway! Just leave a comment on this blog post (one per person please) and we’ll be right back with the winners!

Just keep knitting, knitting, knitting…
