My friend Jess spotted my Knitivity book in this quirky little bit in last Sunday’s Telegraph newspaper in the UK.
Must say that this journalist has pretty eclectic taste. My book’s easiest the most mainstream item there!
…and it is the most affordable item there. Just saying…People looking for an idea for “the difficult to purchase for” are often inspired by this sort of list. Nice that it is all true as well.
Hi Margot – yes I like these lists too and it’s nice to see some more unusual items even if they would probably break the bank!
I need your help, could you be so kind as to tell me how I can purchase the book calle knitivity?
It is on Amazon UK at this link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Knitivity-Create-Your-Christmas-Scene/dp/1449403654. Sorry I can’t work out how to do a hyperlink in this reply. I know they ship internationally but you might be able to find it closer to home.
Many thanks Fiona
Your book resonated enough with me that I wrote about it today in Wooly Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, DIY Christmas Scene with Knitivity by Fiona Goble on ‘Serge the Concierge’.
‘The French Guy from New Jersey’
Merci, Serge – et Joyeux Noel.
I found Knitivity a Hobby Lobby. I am excited to make this project. I am having trouble getting the stand up doll to stay up. Can you give a bit more detail on stitching the base in place? Thanks!
Can you recommend a specific brand of “short length” knitting needles to use in creating these lovely figures? My DP needles are just too long for ease of knitting. Thank you for sharing your wonderful imagination and skill.
Hi Ollie – I just use the shortest needles I can find. Many I buy come from thrift stores, but if I buy new I usually buy Pony ones because these are what my local shop sells. They are metal which is what I prefer – I have broken too many bamboo ones by sitting on them! Best wishes and thanks for the kind comments.
