Book Review

Recently released in paperback, the Mason-Dixon Knitting book is still one of my favorites but at a more affordable price than the hardcover version. One of my go-to dish cloth patterns came from this book, the ballband dishcloth I think I've knit about 423 of those things. There are so many patterns through out this book but scattered in between those patterns are tip, tricks, stories, jokes and tons of great photos. Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne are long time bloggers who met online and came together in a collaborative effort know as Mason-Dixon Knitting, how can it get any better than that? They have a great wit about them and are very talented knitters. The patterns in the book range anywhere from dishcloths to curtains, nightgowns to shawls, seat cushions to towels, blankets to rugs and everything in between for beginners and the more seasoned knitter. If you don't already own this book it is definitely a good one to pick up. It's more than just a knitting pattern book, it's entertainment.
