"At last, a new book from the amazing Mel, a knitting goddess. She continues to inspire me with her stylish, sexy, and fashionable designs. I cannot wait to check my gauge and cast on." Tracey Ullman

Knitting is an art where you can make something that is both functional and an outlet for your creative expression. Wearing a beautiful handmade accessory makes you feel special, and they are wonderful gifts, both to give and receive. Quick-to-finish, accessories are always popular with knitters.

In this beautiful new book there is a project for anyone. They include: Origami Scarf, Opera Hood, Fingerless Gloves, Men’s Scarf, Felted Purse with Bead Embellishments, Prairie Shawl, Felted Messenger Bag, Wrist Warmers, Fine Cardigan, Lap Blanket and 15 others.

"You want to knit and wear every single project in this book. Plus, there is something for everyone in here! Somehow Mel knows exactly what knitters really want to knit. Everyday Finery is destined to become a well-loved and heavily used addition to my knitting library.” Susan B Anderson, author of Spud and Chloe at the Farm

“Mel has created a quietly passionate collection of knits which will pique the curiosity of any knitter, and crosses many skill levels.  My fingers itched to knit up many of these lovely, utilitarian designs.  I cannot wait to cast on the Lulu scarf!” Annie Modesitt, Knit Designer
