Once Upon a Knit: 28 Grimm and Glamorous Fairy-Tale Projects by Genevieve Miller.
This is my current favourite knitting book. It is absolutely jam-packed with beautiful patterns, some which I would definitely want to make, and others that are just fun to fawn over.
I fell in love with the image on the cover instantly, and although I would likely never wear a Little Red Riding Hood cape, it is stunning and it really gets the creative juices flowing. (I actually wish I was brave enough to wear something like this, as it's so flippin' cute...)
There are definitely a few projects in the book that I am dying to make, and each one is inspired by Fairy Tales. These are the ones I am desperate to get knitting...
Woodland Friends Hats
My daughter really needs a hat for Winter, but I think it might be a few years until these will fit her. But seriously, how freaking cute are hats with ears?!
Cinderella Play Set
Yet again, something I want to make for my little girl. This is actually a pattern for a Cinderella doll, three little mouse friends, and a little pumpkin drawstring bag to carry them around in!
Jack and the Bean Socks
And finally, the Jack and the Bean Socks. I love these. I love socks (even though I never actually knit, or even wear them), and I always stop and fawn over beautiful sock patterns. Maybe I'll find a willing victim I can knit them for!
Overall I think this is a very inspiring book by Genevieve Miller, it has definitely helped pull me out of my knitting slump. Even if you never knit a thing from it, if you have a creative mind, and a love of all things fantasy this is definitely a book I would recommend for your collection!
Would you knit, or wear any of these Brother's Grimm Fairy Tale inspired accessories? Or do you have a favourite knitting book that I should check out? Let me know!
