Magpies, Homebodies and Nomads by Cirilia Rose (Stewart, Tabori, & Chang, 2014)

Magpies, Homebodies and Nomads by Cirilia Rose (Stewart, Tabori, & Chang, 2014)

The modern knitting enthusiast's life is a mult-faceted one. Cirilia Rose recognizes this in her book Magpies, Homebodies and Nomads (Stewart, Tabori, & Chang, 2014), which is why the book is divided into three sections. The "Magpies" section gives you a way to use all those precious little yarn scraps you've collected over the years. The "Homebodies" section is full of knitting projects best suited for quiet knitting sessions in the comfort of your own home. The "Nomads" features projects for when you feel compelled to go out and share your work with the knitting community and get inspired.


If you'd like to enter for a chance to win one of two copies of this book, it's as simple as leaving a comment here by December 8. The winners will be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter.

This book would provide the type of inspiration and instruction I'm looking for. Thanks for the opportunity to win it!
