In December I received another couple (!) of Japanese knitting books I have bought from YesAsia.com
Of course I went for the latest copy of Keito Dama
There is quite a strong Scandinavian vibe, which I really like, even that pair going skiing with no snow to be seen?? The winter issues of Keito Dama are always a lot more geared towards knitting.. and the kind of knitting I like to do. The Spring/Summer issues are much more about crochet. There is always a bit of both in each issue but its worth noting.
There are a lot more accessories in this book with a few jumpers and vests. Anything to add to my inspirations!
This book, is one I bought purely on the cover.. i hoped, since I couldn’t find any more information about it. that it would be full of Fair Isle, which it isn’t
It’s a lovely book, but shows one of the downfalls of buying these books online. You can’t look inside, so you have to kind of go by the cover. Still inspirational though!
This book was an impulse purchase.. really i just thought it looked cute. I have dabbled (pardon the pun) in the idea of taking up needle felting.. as if i need another hobby.. but the pictures in the book are really cute and of course the layouts and set ups are very inspirational
who doesn’t want a teenie tiny inedible baguette?!
I have just ordered another few books.. YesAsia.com is, I think, the best place to buy these types of books from. There is a huge range of books and they have free worldwide postage. Yes it takes a long time for them to arrive but you would wait the same amount of time from other places and pay more for the books and postage. When these newest books come though, I am taking a break.. i think i have a problem!
