From autumn to spring I always have a pair of fingerless mitts close at hand for chilly days, walking the dogs but mainly because I like them. I tend to wear mainly black and grey so they are a great way to introduce a bit of colour. If I'm experimenting with a new pattern or yarn, I'll often knit up a pair. I would rarely splurge on something like cashmere for a garment but when it comes to mitts..... Well this year I'm not going to have any problem finding patterns - my worry is whther I have enough scrumptious yarn - because of a great new book that arrived in the post called Pretty Knitted Hands by Clara Falk and Kamilla Svanlund. The 27 patterns have been broken down into seasons and although some of the designs are definitely not my taste, there is enough variety for everyone. The techniques such as Latvian braid are explained clearly, and there is a nice mix of cables, lace and colour work, wrist warmers and full mittens. To my mind this is a book to buy now for all that christmas gift knitting I'm sure you have already started planning. Full review and images: https://julietbernard.co.uk/ * A Kingfisher Morning * This is a really lovely book with a diverse range of patterns to suit different seasons. There are some really wonderful patterns encompassing a number of techniques from lace work to colour work to cables, and I'm really enjoying my first foray into cables via the 'Stella' pattern! * Leanne Mccane * I love to knit but I have never had the confidence to try to make some gloves as I thought they would be very difficult to do, however this great pattern book has changed my point of view. In the introduction it clearly explains how to use five needles or use the `magic loop' form of knitting, after watching a youtube video I can see that magic loop is easy once you get the hang of it. I liked the introductions as the writer clearly shows different forms of casting on techniques as well as talking about circular knitting techniques and abbreviations are explained. It appears I'm not the only person who thought gloves would be too difficult to attempt! The patterns that make up the main part of the book have clear colour photos of the finished products and easy to use instructions. I liked the text box on the side that tells you exactly what materials you need to begin, the expected finished dimensions and also what tension you should be working in order to get the correct finished results. The mittens and gloves that use more than one colour also have a very easy to follow stitch colour chart. I liked the `wrist warmers' as they are a relatively simple shape and are very fashionable and the stitch patterns in this book are unusual and look lovely. All in all this is a well laid out and easy to follow guide to knitting pretty and unusual mittens and wrist warmers, I can't wait to get started on my first project now. * Linda Guest * An absolutely fabulous book, I love all of the patterns. I was a bit apprehensive about knitting using a chart, but wow it was so easy, even surprised myself. I know what my friends are getting for Christmas * Christine Blanchflower * Very good book.Patterns are easy to ready.Bright and colourful patterns. And lots of helpful hint and tips. Now just to decide which one to do. * Liga Celmina * This book offers a beautiful selection of patterns to make 17 very different mittens and wrist warmers.The patterns are clearly written and easy to follow. The photographs of the finished items are stunning and have inspired me to have a go. These will be perfect for gifts for my friends. * Clare Bradshaw * A truly beautiful book with some really inspiring makes. Despite not being so interested in the wrist warmers (although some of the patterns are lovely) the mittens are absolutely stunning! Having only previously made very plain mittens, I instantly fell in love with all of the mitten patterns. The charts are also really easy to follow. I particularly love the newlywed mittens - just need

Kamilla Svanlund learned to knit as a child, but it was when she was a teenager that knitting really became a big part of her life. She started knitting mittens for her friends in upper secondary school, and it was fun to be able to give them something unique. That was how she started designing mittens - she could knit them quickly and there was room for lots of motifs on them, so she was able to give her creativity free rein. She started her blog in 2008 mainly to find other people with the same interest who were not at least 25 years older than her. Writing it has helped her to find lots of new friends and started discussions and debates on craft-related issues that are close to her heart. Blog: www.hemslojd-tidningen.se/argastickaren Clara Falk has knitted every day since she was about 14. At that time it was about having something unique, something that few other people had. Since then, knitting has developed into something that she needs to do to feel happy - knitting is calming and provides an outlet for her creativity, as well as time to reflect. In 2007 she started a blog, as she did not know many people who knitted at that time. The blog became a forum where people responded to what she was doing, and at the same time she got to know other people who knitted and could discuss things with them and be inspired.
