What Can I Knit Tonight?

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

This is a familiar question asked by knitters, “What Can I Knit Tonight?” and British designer, Jo Allport has provided the answers in her first book of designs, thirty fun projects featuring the rustic artistry that is the beauty of Noro yarns.  Motivated by her love of knitting, an interest in trying new stitches and most of all– instant results, Jo realized she was not alone.  After discussing the idea with fellow knitters, she came up with a range of projects to complete in a day, an evening or a weekend, all fully functional and fashionable as cold weather accessories, gift ideas, and home décor items.
