I received only one stitching-related book for Christmas. It is The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes and Gauges, by Ann Budd.
There are several patterns in the book I like. I have only shown you details of the patterns but I have provided links to the garments where I could. If you are not a member of Ravelry, I apologise that you can’t access some of these links.
Alpine Tweed By Jared Flood (from his website)
Fibonacci Rings by Ann Budd (Ravelry link)
Cable Love Henley by Ann Budd (or here for Ravelry link)
India Print Henley by Anne Hanson (modelled here by my blog friend Jocelyn, from Knitting Linguist)
Feather and Fan Flare by Ann Budd (Ravelry link)
I don’t know if I would wear either of the first two, I am too well endowed to want to draw attention to my bust area (says she whose Westall cardigan has lace panels you-know-where) but I certainly can admire the designs.
DD borrowed French Girl Knits (by Kristeen Griffin-Grimes) from the library. I have fallen for a couple of the patterns, particularly Anjou and Celeste.
Have you seen any new-to-you stitching books lately?
