7 Day Knitting Book Challenge

Over the past week I have been really enjoying the 7 Day Knitting Book Challenge on Instagram. Started by Rachel Atkinson, Daughter of A Shepherd, the challenge has been answered by knitters and crafters from all over the world! Each person's 7 days begin when they are ready and Rachel suggested posting only a picture of the book, with no explanation, comment or review needed. There are some excellent books covering a great variety of topics, from stitch directories to historical perspectives on knitting and fibre crafts.

Here are the seven that I selected from my bookshelves. I'm looking forward to seeing your books if you would like to join in. Just look for the #7dayknittingbookchallenge on Instagram and share your crafting library!

Day 1: Knitting Nature by Norah Gaughan with photography by Thayer Allyson Gowdy

Day 2: Knitwear Design Workshop by Shirley Padden

Day 3: Knitting: Fashion, Industry, Craft by Sandy Black

Day 4: Die Strick Enzyklopaedie by Maria Parry-Jones (originally published as The Knitting Stitch Bible)
