New knitting loot

A bit more knitting loot:

The yarn and Folk Knitting in Estonia book come from Nordic Fiber Arts. The skein of yarn will allow me to finish my Nordic mittens--finally. Pictures soon! I have wanted to pick up the Folk Knitting in Estonia by Nancy Bush for a while. From what the Nordic Fiber Arts owner says, this one is close to out of print, so get your copy while you can!

The smaller blue and white book is a great find: They Lived By the Sea: Folklore and Ganseys Of the Pentland Firth by Hetty Munro. Elizabeth Lovick sold about 30 copies of these books through one of the knitting lists that I receive. Apparently Munro's niece and nephew had these copies in their attic and wanted them to go to knitters. The book focuses on both the history of Ganseys of the Pentland Firth and includes a number of patterns. I am intrigued with these simple, yet beautiful designs. If you want additional information on these check the website.
