Two very different books with a common theme are on sale today! Can you guess what the theme is? I’ll give you a hint: fabulous fall leaves.
That’s right: the theme of the day is COLOR! Whether you’re holding a box of pencils or a pair of knitting needles, with these books in hand you’ve got the tools you need to bring beautiful, luxurious colorful pieces of art into your life.
Adult coloring books are having a true moment this year, and they don’t seem to be losing momentum! Four Seasons: A Coloring Book by Japanese artist Aiko Fukawa is filled with beautifully detailed black-and-white illustrations that will inspire you to bring each scene to life through coloring. There are pages and pages of charming images for each season that promise to delight people of all ages–with rambling rose gardens and whimsical garden critters; wreaths and alphabets composed of fruits and flowers; butterflies and seashells; intricate falling leaves and cozy cat-occupied living rooms; and ribbons and Christmas trees just waiting for you and your colored pencils, gel pens, or markers to complete.
If you prefer something a bit more tactile (or wearable!) for your color fix, Simple Color Knitting: A Complete How-to-Knit-with-Color Workshop with 20 Projects should fit the bill. Following the success of both Simple Knitting and Simple Crocheting, Erika Knight now shares her color expertise using the same workshop-based project format. As you work through the projects, you learn new techniques, allowing you to build up an essential repertoire of color-knitting skills, like working motifs in intarsia or creating Fair Isle patterns. When completed, you will have a stunning collection of colorful projects including multicolor throws, colorblock cushions, Fair Isle mittens, and striped scarves and sweaters. You’ll also learn the secrets to composing an enticing color palette, as Knight shares her knowledge of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors; tints, shades, contrasts, and tones in practical terms that anyone can understand. With inspiring photography by Yuki Sugiura that showcases each of the projects beautifully, and supported with clear colorwork charts and illustrations, Simple Color Knitting will take your knitting know-how to the next level.
