One of the pleasures of blogging is when a lovely book shows up in my mailbox for reviewing.
Today’s book is one of the most beautiful to come along in a long time:
Knit Red: Stitching for Women’s Heart Health by Laura Zander published by sixth&spring books
Knit Red is a gorgeous book. The patterns are for knitters who are at least intermediate skill level.
There are 30 red, heart health-inspired patterns and personal stories from well loved designers- with beautiful photos and excellent charts.
It’s a compendium of gorgeous fashion accessories, with most of the patterns featuring either cable or lace work. Luscious!
As well, there are heart healthy living tips, resources and recipes- a feast for the senses.
Knit Red is part of the Needlearts industry’s national heart disease awareness campaign, Stitch Red (http://stitchred.com/default.asp), and a percentage of it’s proceeds will support The Heart Truth®.
This is one book that would be a perfect gift for the holidays, or even better, a treat to yourself to help you make exquisite gifts from the heart!
