Stitchionary  volume one knit & purl
250 stitch patterns from Vogue Knitting.

This book is amazing.  Divided into four chapters by stitch pattern:  Knit & Purl, Lace, Traveling and Unusual Stitches.  
I just love the beginning... how to use this book.  It is honestly one of the easiest most comprehensive, well written knitting books I have ever had my hands on.
Each chapter is arranged from easiest stitch pattern to most challenging.  Truly a wealth of information for the novice knitter or the seasoned.

Soho publishing has offered to give two of my readers a copy.  If interested, please leave a comment here before Monday April 30, 4pm EST and I will have the random generator choose 2 names.

Have a beautiful weekend!
