Coffee House Knits: Knitting Patterns & Essays With Robust Flavor by Kerry Bogert
This is a beautiful book filled with coffee themed knitting projects using various types of yarns. There are scarves, cowls, sweaters, hats, pullovers (I'm looking forward to knitting this & wearing the "Dirty Chai" pullover), shawls, socks, cardigan (another I'm itching to get started to wear next winter, the "House Blend" cardigan), & mittens.
The photos are beautiful & artistic featuring hot cuppa settings. There are multiple photos of each project. Each project is a few pages per book. Some photos offer better details than others. While I enjoy the warm model photos, I would have greatly appreciated a few full view photos - front & back, as well as good close ups of unique patterns.
My favorite part of this book are the sweet short stories from other knitters & how knitting has positively impacted their lives.
The back of the book offers yarn resources. I would have loved if they provided more unique small scale sellers in this section, as many of them have some of the best yarns, rovings, & raw wool one can find. No store can ever compete with these unique specialty sellers. Hint, a great way to find them is to visit Etsy, Ravelry, your local Fiber Festival, & sometimes even your local farmers market.
Overall, this is a beautiful book for the moderate to experienced knitter. It is hard cover, full color & would also make for a great gift. I'm more than happy to be adding this gem to my overstuffed bookshelf.
