Knitting book candy



FAMILY ALBUM
by Kaffee Fassett and Zoe Hunt

I found this book during one of my book hunts in Princeton. It is truly one of the most beautiful knitting books I've ever seen. The sweaters are a parade of color and design. What was equally alluring were the pictures of the people. Different people than who are usually featured together. If for nothing more than the people gathered together for this photo shoot wearing such spectacular sweaters I would keep the book. It is such a special book that I feel guilty about having it knowing that I won't be making any of these beautiful sweaters anytime soon. I'm thinking about passing it along on the Destash site I'm a member of. I know many of the knitters over there would love to jump right in and make a few dozen of these before the year is out.

What do you think? Should I keep it?

Keep the book :-) You'll never know when you need it! And I am 'wowed' by your knitted creations. I learnt knitting a year back. And honestly, I am NOT a knitter. I keep forgetting how to knit. Haha. I'm still trying to finish up a vintage coloured scarf, in time for christmas.

I have a Kaffe Fassett quilt book that I keep around just to look at...I can only dream of making any of his quilts. That said, I have some books just for inspiration...keep it for inspiration.

I have that book and it's a delight to browse through. Get rid of the guilt and keep the book, I say.

Gorgeous, if it was me, I'd definitely keep it.
If you really want to get rid of it, you could send it to me. hehe just kidding.

I will check out The Mother --- for sure.

Am I the only one that thinks Daniel Craig looks a little like Steve McQueen?!

I say KEEP. I have a Kaffe Fassett quilting book that I love to look at. His work with colorways is inspiring. BTW - I don't, nor do I ever plan on quilting - the book, to quote anonymous, is eye candy and yummy!
