You are so right about Marianne Isager's new book Japanese Inspired Knits, it does look and sound like a must have.
I am even more excited about the coming Baby Knits e-book! I have a beautiful granddaughter who is just 6 months old. I am desperate to knit some clothing for her. Most patterns available out there are for yet another version of a baby blanket. It has been very difficult to find a simple (as my knitting skills are not up to most intermdiate patterns) yet wearable sun dress for a 6 month old. I am anxious to see what you have been able to get in the new e-book.
Thank you for continuing the Knitting Daily newsletter! It is inspiring, there is always something I want to knit, even when I dont have time or energy! It keeps knitting on my mind.
