Stitch New York

Knit the city that never sleeps with this kooky book from Lauren O’Farrell (aka Deadly Knitshade), from a super-cute mini statue of Liberty to a woolly Woody Allen. Buy here

Long-Legged friends

We love the simple black-and-white style of these whimsical little toys, apparently a craze in Japan, where they were first conjured up by a grandmother for her grandchildren. Buy here

The Knitted Home

With 30 projects over ten rooms, Sian Brown has made sure that every corner of your home can benefit from knitted and crocheted style. Buy here

Wool Book Two

This beautifully shot e-book comes from partners in knit, Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre. It features five snugly projects, delivered straight to your digital library. Wool Book Three & Four are now available, too! Buy here
