I scored at the library this week. There aren’t many knitting or crochet books that I haven’t seen as I periodically check for new publications, but this one, Knitalong, is an exception.

Knitalong, Celebrating the Tradition of Knitting Together, is written by Larissa and Martin Brown. A visually appealing book, as most knitting books are, it covers very well the subject of knitters working together. That could be as part of a local knitting group, an internet swap, a charity blanket square, or a group of far-flung knitters working on the same project. There are 20 projects included within the book that make for good “knitalong” knitting, including gauntlets, blankets, a shawl, hat, scarves and even a felted nest.

It took me three days to read this book, with its chapters on knitting for the State Fair, knitting cafés, Knitalongs like the Knitting Olympics, swaps and giving to people in need.

I really enjoyed it, and I’m sure you will too.
