Nordic Knitting- this book is in japanese and english, and shows 7 knitting techniques from nordic countries. I really just love the idea of using scrap yarn to make this knitted chain for festive Christmas tree decoration.
(First read how to make yarn from old Tshirts!) Nail loom tutorial - excellent tutorial on making a nail loom square for blankets etc. Great for those like me that are not that good at crocheting granny squares.
