I love the library because I get to peruse all sorts of books I wouldn’t ordinarily buy. It’s great to browse brand new knitting books to decide for myself whether they’re something I need or want for my permanent collection. I just got Michael del Vecchio’s this week,balls.jpg

but what I really love about it isn’t the charming photographs and unusually masculine yet good looking patterns. What I love is the cover shot! I’m thrilled that the model is posed using the very same yarn that I chose to knit with for my man this winter! I’m tickled that this book’s art director and I had the exact same hunch for finding a quintessentially male yarn.
