These amazing patterns, designed by Britt-Marie Christoffersson, are from her book Pop knitting : bold motifs using color and stitch. I especially like the textured patterns but it's almost impossible to pick out a favourite because they are all so good. If you're interested in innovative knitting and stitch manipulation, then this is the book for you. I borrowed it from my local library. Maybe your library has it too? More images here and here.
Also don't forget Fabric-a-brac is in Auckland on August 18th. You'll be supporting the Mercy Hospice and, I hope, finding yourself some lovely fabrics.
