The book stitch ‘n bitch:The knitters handbook is a must have! Not only have I have found it to be a great reference book for any skill level, I chuckle at it’s witty tongue and cheek sub titles like “casting call How to Cast On Stitches”, “knit happens How to Make a Knit Stitch” , “if you can stand the heat The Kitchener Stitch”, “standing firm The Cable Cast-on” and “bound for glory How to Bind Off Your Work” just to name a few. A fun and hip view on knitting, this is definitely not your grandmother’s knitting book!

So, dare I saw “cotton”? Yes, the yarn pictured above is cotton. I like the variety that ARAUCANIA offers in wool and cotton yarns. Being that the current project is a pack of face cloths, the cotton suits my needs. Next project…something with wool!
