'Homemade' by Ros Badger and Elspeth Thompson. It is choca block full of gorgeous ideas to get busy making. And, secondly the Knitter's bible by Claire Crompton. I have already found this useful. Two books I would recommend.
Then I paid a visit to one of the two lovely, independant wool shops, to stock up on yarns for making some pressies. I have started making some fingerless mitts today, they seem to be going welll so far. Does anyone else have knitting projects on the go?
