This wouldn't be the first time I've blogged about knitting with a literary theme. It probably won't be the last. And I am still thinking about that article I'd like to write on the topic.
However, today a book arrived on my porch and I thought I'd quickly share it.
Being a great Austen fan, I couldn't go by this, even though my crochet skills are rather... wonky. The cover blouse is called - brilliantly, I add - "Eat Your Heart Out Willoughby." I'm not quite so sure about the "Dreaming of Mr Knightley Pajama Set." The styles aren't always entirely practical, but there's also some good cushions and rugs for the less adventurous, all with a theme drawn from Austen and Regency fashions.
A student once presented me with the volume below as a thank you after she finished one of her degrees. It was a wonderful surprise.
There are a range of books out for more contemporary literature too. I learned how to knit mittens from Charmed Knits. It's a great source for basic patterns, actually.
