This episode's book review: Scandinavian Stitches: 21 Playful Projects with Seasonal Flair (Stash Books)
What a fun book by one of my favorite designers, Kajsa Wikman (aka Syko Designs) - see link in nav bar above for more details.
Here are the Yule Houses I made from the book:
Thrift store find - could this be Pottery Barn? It's very well made. I love the little drawers with the vintage-looking glass handles.
My wrap in progress - adapted from Countess Bathory Scarf pattern in Vampire Knits: Projects to Keep You Knitting from Twilight to Dawn
World's cutest stitch marker - made from Hobby Lobby charm find.
Here are the curtains I refashioned from thrifted curtains (I felt very Scarlet O'Hara-ish during this project!)
Here are some of the hats I've made for Carewear.org - how sweet are those preemie Ravens' purple hats?

Here it is, close up - it's said to be worth at least $3 million, probably much more. Fascinating stuff, I had a hard time walking away from it!
