New Books to Look Out For !!!

  I have three lovely new books finished. One is already on the shelves and the remaining two won't be far behind.  Cutest Ever Baby Toys to Knit / Cutest Ever Baby Toys to Knit and Crochet published by New Holland . The UK version is already available and contains 30 patterns for both old favourites of mine and new and exclusive designs in both knitting and crochet.  The US version is out in August and has just 20 knitted designs.
 November will see Knit-a - Bear  published. This title is by GMC Publications and contains 15 of the cutest bears out !  A mom and baby, a camo bear,  a princess bear, a sailor bear and even a skateboarding bear complete with skateboard are amonsgt some of the treats. All their outfits are mix and match so you can create a whole wardrobe of clothes for your bear.
January 2015 will see Love to Knit Rabbits published by Search Press.  This is a book with 20 different designs, all in different shapes and sizes, from mini bunnies that will sit in the palm of your hand, right up to  big cuddly bunnies with pretty dresses and headbands. There is even a Valentine Bunny complete with red heart.
March will see my latest book that I am currently working on published.  Winter Knits by New Holland publishers is a collection of 25 simple knits for hats, scarves, wristwarmers, legwarmers, socks, ponchos, easy sweaters, infact a compilation of knits to warm your hands, head and feet as well as your heart. I have used exotic yarns like Alpaca/silk, Bison, Angora and Cashmere for some of the projects but an alternative yarn is offered in each pattern.  Something a little different for me so a nice change from the usual toys.
   I will ofcourse be continuing to design an exclusive toy for Let'Knit Magazine every month as normal !!  
                  Wishing you all many hours if happy knitting and crochet . Val
