French Girl Knits

Oh my goodness! I love it. There are about 4 or 5 things I HAVE to make. Including a beautiful shrug that has this really interesting construction. I had to cut the shape out of paper and tape it together to completely understand it, but you make a t-shape and sew it together to make a circular shape that you then knit the sleeves from the provisional stitches you cast on for the t-shape. The photo garment is made in Rowan Kidsilk Haze, but I am thinking this calls for cashmere. I might even have to make it in a few colors!

Tell me you're bringing this to SNB tonight! I want to take a peek through it! It combines two of my favorite things...France and Knitting!

Even though I don't care much about France or even knitting at the moment - I still can't wait to see this book! It sounds really interesting. Thanks for letting us know about it.
