Brave New Knits

Brave New Knits: 26 Projects and Personalities from the Knitting BlogosphereBrave New Knits: 26 Projects and Personalities from the Knitting Blogosphere by Julie Turjoman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With a foreword from Jessica, one of the co-owners of the "facebook for knitters" site, I jumped at the chance to get a copy of this book to review from While the galley was very rough (there were notes back & forth in between the actual text, and I had a few dozen pages of garbage to skip through), the true light of the book shown through. Different designers shared a project, something that was suggestive of the designer's usual style.

The book comes with 26 patterns, divided up into different sections that's the usual for knitting books. There's a good variety of projects in different skill sets. Each one starts with a little biography about the designer & their blogging history/background, before one dives into the pattern. There were a couple of projects that caught my eye especially, including "Working all the Angles" blanket & the Lubov Scarf.
