Book Review: Knit Local

I have decided that the review copies of books are starting to pile up again, so it's time to reinstitute Book Review Monday!

First up, is Knit Local published by Sixth & Spring:

 

When I opened the front cover, I fell in love.
 

The book gives you all kinds of information about yarn companies, mills and farms, their business philosophies, and back stories. There are lots of lovely pictures to accompany each one's description.
 

The book is split up to companies by region, and each company has a pattern associated with it. The patterns in this book are amazing, and photographed beautifully.
I think this book would be a great addition to any knitter's bookshelf. There are lots of great patterns in it, ranging from simple scarves to sweaters. And, the information about some of the yarn companies within the United States was very interesting.

Want my review copy? Leave a comment on this post between now and 7/13. I will use a random number generator to select the winner. Make sure you leave a Ravelry ID or something so I can find you should you win.

Good luck and happy knitting!

Note: I received this book as a review copy. For more information, please see my disclosure policy. There is a link to it in the sidebar.

    This looks like a very interesting book! I am located in Canada, so "local" wouldn't quite apply to me, but since so many yarns available here are from the US, knowing more about them would be great when deciding what yarn to get. Thank you for a chance to win!

    We try to eat as much local food as possible and support as many local businesses as we can so it is an obvious extension to knit local. Would love to sit and peruse this book.
