Knitter's Journals (Indian Lily or Monarch Cover)

I use journals continuously for all my knitting ideas and decided to print a smythe-sewn, hardcover knitting journal with drawing pages, 56 lined writing pages, and various sizes (8:8, 5:7, 8:11, 6:6) of graph paper throughout. The 128pp includes 17 small drawings of techniques for quick reference (such as stocking-stitch and garter-stitch weaving), knitting abbreviations and symbols, a needle conversion chart and 20 cogent quotes from Elizabeth Zimmermann's five books. I've also included Elizabeth's instructions for wearable art socks and the drawing for EPS Yoke and Drop-Shoulder garments.

Hardcover. 128 pp, Smythe Sewn for durability. Photos to left show front/back cover view. Fronts are pale sage w/images, backs are slate blue w/images and in Elizabeth's handwriting "Good Knitting to one and all."

Choose from either a Monarch (front)/Dragonfly (back) cover or an Indian Lily (front)/EZ's wearable art socks (back) cover, $12 or order two for $20 in the style drop down at left.
