The Colourful World of Kaleidoscope!

This week another book dropped through my post box

Kaleidoscope - 24 Knit and Crochet projects for the Home by Debbie Abrahams and Jane Crowfoot.  
This book has a myriad of colourful projects for knitters and crocheters alike, it oozes style.  Each project is so well thought out and includes quirky names like Zing, Spangle and Crackle!

Debbie and Jane are well known for their fantastic designs for the home, both having very successful knitting and crochet clubs which run each year and fill up quickly.  I am lucky enough to know both ladies quite well and am aware of just how much hard work and passion go into their designs, each being well thought out and beautifully written.

This book is  a real treat for the eyes, the photography is slick and each piece is superbly styled, its a visual feast!  Their colour choices are bright, eye catching and sophisticated.

Each pattern is beautifully laid out, encouraging you to try out new techniques, including colour work and beading, they appeal to all levels of ability.  Using Rowan yarns Debbie and Jane tempt you with palette of gorgeous colours.

Having worked on one of the projects for the book I have first hand experience on just how delightful the designs are to work on.

This book has something for everyone with encouragement and tips for each project.  Now all I have to decide is which piece I want to do next!
Kaleidoscope is available from Janie but hurry they're being snapped up fast.

Until next time......Nicky xx
