If you’ve ever had a hard time deciding whether to knit or read, you’ll understand how 100% awesome this book is. How could you not love mittens based off civil war-era patterns and a copy of Little Women? Or a cabled fisherman’s sweater and Moby Dick? A lined hood with a color-worked ermine and The Golden Compass? A hand warmer muff and Anna Karenina? It’s time: knitters and bookworms, UNITE!
