This book could not have come at a more perfect time! The days have been crazy here in Colorado with Seattle-like rain and snow on Mother’s Day … I’m itching for all things summery so I can remember the easy, breezy feel again! I have quite a few lovely linens on hand and when I look through the airy, beautiful patterns in this new book, Warm Days, Cool Knits, by Corrina Ferguson, I am inspired to pull them out!
I’m quite fortunate to count Corrina as one of my very good, wonderful friends. In fact, I’ll just say it – I adore her. Kind, thoughtful, and endearingly funny, she is probably one of the best cheerleaders you could ask for. Her design aesthetic, though, will delight you! Everything she creates looks so … finished, so elegant and detailed, like it was made especially for you. The way her mind works always blows my mind.
Ok, back to the book! This is absolutely the one you need for your entire summer of knitting, or, if you are one of those lucky ones that lives in year-round warm climate (how I loathe you right now… hehe). Stunningly lacy, colorful shawls, lightweight cardigans loaded with texture, and small projects that won’t melt you on hot days fill the pages. The patterns are simple, yet engaging, with small details that make each one unique. You won’t be bored at all – you’ll delight in each and every finished project, from start to finish.
The photography is light and fun, while the book layout itself is crisp, clean, and easy to read. Corrina writes just as she does on her blog, with a level of personal attention that feels comfortable and intimate.
Warm Days, Cool Knits is a lovely, summery book to add to your knitting library.
