A Playful Palette of 10 Knitted Accessories
By Tabetha Hedrick (Annie's, 48 pages, $14.95)
All that beautifully colored sock-weight yarn on the shelves, but what to do with it? You could knit socks, of course, but you could also expand your horizons by making other fun accessories. Inspired by travel, and named for cities and airports around the world, these items are just the ticket for portable knitting. Worked in lovely Koigu yarn, they combine fingering-weight yarn with fun-to-knit designs, providing a big bang for the buck. The Hilo Scarflette and Melbourne Cape are just right for wrapping around shoulders in chilly air-conditioned airports, and the hats, scarves and mitts will keep you cozy in cooler climates.
