Sharp Notions: Essays from the Stitching Life by Marita Dachsel

Those who craft know it’s sometimes a lonely and solitary hobby. Community can provide information and help us remember we’re not alone, and that’s what I found in this collection of essays by crafters of all mediums. The diverse range of stories and experiences made me feel welcome while reminding me that our experiences are as varied as the crafts and materials we use. Great as a gift for the crafter in your life or to remind yourself why we do these madcap things.

Knitting for Olive Edited by Meredith Dros

If you’re a knitter who likes timeless design with a modern touch, you will adore Knitting for Olive! I’m swooning over the sweaters, cardigans, hats, tops, and scarves within these pages. A mother-daughter team runs the Danish brand behind this book, which is filled with 20 patterns that vary in difficulty, so there’s really something for everyone. I love that the patterns are in a broad range of sizes (XS–4XL) and that the designs seem like they’ll never go out of style. A great gift for any knitter.
