Fall always ushers in knitting season for me, when the cooler temperatures bring forth cozy memories of curling up with a knitting project. If you are looking for something new to knit, pick up "Contemporary Irish Knits
" by Carol Feller. This book contains 20 beautiful apparel and accessories designs for men, women, and children, each crafted with richly colored yarns and intricate textures. Feller has included material substitutions and notes when various yarns are sold under a different label in the Unites States. Nestled among the designs are details about the last yarn mills and hand dyers in Ireland. Be prepared to run to your local yarn shop the second you finish "Contemporary Irish Knits."
