I had ordered several books from Germany, US and Japan. Most of them have arrived and one by one I will take them to my ‘Knit Cafe’.
One I really wanted is about ‘Paper Textiles’ from Christina Leitner. This is very interesting, with lots of ideas about using paper for textiles. Than I got a book about socks from around the world, a great German book about natural yarn dyeing and two books with great ideas for free form crochet.
One of the free form crochet book had and interesting quote from ‘Stephen Nachmanovitch‘ saying “Creativity exists more in the searching than in the finding”. I found that quite true and just ordered his book: “Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art”. Should make some interesting reading.
