Interweave’s first e-book!
See? Electronic books are all the rage. First me, now Interweave. Awesome. Just in time for the holidays, it’s Christmas Stockings: 7 Classic Holiday Treasures To Knit. The patterns in this e-book were taken from Christmas Stockings: Holiday Treasures to Knit by Elaine Lipson (Interweave, 2001), a popular book no longer in print. There’s something for all skill levels (I’m in love with the Sock Monkey stocking, as well as the Austrian Alpine Treasure stocking, which has some supremely beautiful twisted stitch motifs).
Like all Interweave publications, this e-book contains thorough how-to illustrations for stitches and methods used in the book.
I can’t wait to see more publishers embrace the possibilities of digital. I know that I’ve been working hard to point out its considerable advantages (and I have some things brewing behind the scenes apart from the Kindle stuff, too). It’s gratifying to see it finally happening, and to have something as cool as this Christmas stocking e-book lead the way.
And I was just looking to get an ebook reader today. I can’t wait to see what happens in the knitting community for it!
