Annie Maloney book

A really great book arrived this week. Annie Maloney's "Cable knitting handbook". self published in 2004 and available from a few Canadian bookshops online. Just Google for them. Needlearts bookshopis one.

This is her third book and there's a 4th coming soon. The bulk of the book are 101 new original aran patterns she designed. They are arranged by number of stitches starting with 8 and reaching to 44. Each pattern is charted and written out with a good photo of the blocked swatch alongside.

There are lots of ideas, tips and suggestions for designing and making up new designs too.

The book has a good spiral binding and is 93 pages. Cost is about $25 with postage more or less.

I regard it as one of the best books that I own on arans and I have gone ahead and ordered her first two and will also order the next one.
