Simple Knitting by Erika Knight

At the library, my eyes are always way too big for my strength and free time. My armload of books on one recent visit included Erika Knight’s book Simple Knitting: A Complete How-to-Knit Workshop with 20 Projects published in 2011The classic knitted designs made with gorgeous yarns, beautiful photographs by Yuki Sugiura, the simple but clear illustrations, legible typefaces, the paper the book is printed on, and the text all combine to create this feeling of calm – definitely not the vibe I typically give off when knitting – and simplicity.

Great photographs and descriptions of individual stitch patterns.

As a big fan of Eileen Fisher clothing (but an owner of few pieces) and cardigan sweaters, this sweater really spoke to me … I might just knit this sweater over winter.

Make sure to click on the links above for more inspiration from Erika Knight (her blog is here) and Yuki Sugiura.

Happy sewing, knitting, making!
