I know I'm late to the buzz but I'm so absent-minded that I forgot to put my address when I backed @kariebookish 's Kickstarter. I love it, the book is stunning and the patterns very appealing. I was a librarian and archive keeper before Ardilanak was born and I was immediately called by this project cause I too, love books and the smell of antique paper. I sometimes miss the library... . Se que llego tarde a la fiesta pero tengo semejante empanada mental que se me olvido poner mi dirección cuando participé en el Kickstarter de @kariebookish . Me encanta, la edición del libro es una maravilla y los patrones llaman mucho. Fui bibliotecaria y archivera antes del nacimiento de Ardilanak y este proyecto captó mi atención inmediatamente porque yo tambien adoro los libros y el olor del papel antiguo. Hecho de menos la biblioteca... #library #books #knittingbooks #thisthingofpaper #patternbooks #Kickstarter #bibliotecas #libros #librosdepunto #ravelry #instarav #knitting #instaknitting #loveknitting

Here are my completed #minusculemitts casually hanging out next to a beleaguered viola 🌼🌨️🌼 Design by @kariebookish from #thisthingofpaper 📚 Loved knitting these in @raumagarn finullgarn 💕 they're my first entry in the @skeindeer #yearlongmittalong 💕 #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #girlswhoknit #yarnstagram #yarnpig #imadethis #makersgonnamake #operationmittenbox #commercialkal
Today’s happy post! Can’t wait to tuck into this lovely written by the fabulous @kariebookish. Intended to buy direct from the author but delighted to see she has sold out. Thankfully @dyeninja was able to provide me with a copy- thanks Sheila for the prompt and friendly service 👍
We met over 20 years ago in Manchester, became neighbours in Copenhagen, moved abroad to be with our loved one and both ended up in the #knitting industry! But I wont match you @kariebookish in design! You made a little masterpiece here with #thisthingofpaper . 😍Congrats and be proud! Thanks and love here from the NL (my all time favorite shawl is still the #byattshawl ) - pic could be beter though... 😛 #oldfriends
I do love how the freezing fog gives my Purslowe Hat knit in #cornishtin2 an extra fuzzy, dew speckled halo. Walking the school run in freezing fog? Not so much... . . . #embracingtheseasons #purslowehat #thisthingofpaper #kariewestermann @kariebookish #knittersstaywarm #blackeryarns #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #knittersgonnaknit #knitstagram #instaknit
Going to work 😫 train selfie, feat. newly completed #majuscule hat by @kariebookish 💕 Obsessed with the colours and pattern, less obsessed with my tired face 😔 #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #girlswhoknit #yarnstagram #yarnpig #imadethis #makersgonnamake #thisthingofpaper #strandedknitting #colourwork
Wool exploration is the last phrase for #12daysofknitsmas So I just had to pop into Kathy's Knits today and buy some British Gotland. Mmm, I suspect it will play well with Millarochy Tweed. Oh, and what else do we see? Well, the two balls of Blue Faced Leicester lace on the left are destined to become a Woodcut shawl from #thisthingofpaper as part of the #blackerpodkal Thanks #knitbritish for introducing me to all sorts of breeds and knitting activities.
Yay! I used some saved-up birthday money to purchase @kariebookish 's lovely book. Now to make some library/archivist appropriate knitwear 😀 Thanks to @brityarn for the super speedy postage. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #lsgravelry #thisthingofpaper #knitallthethings #selfishknitting #iwantallofthem #imakethingswithsticksandstrings
NoNeinNyet has registered for three Cannonball Reads, but she posted her first ever book review for CBR10 with a Kickstarter funded book. It combines her passion for knitting with her love of books and her online friendships. Karie Westermann's This Thing Of Paper: Eleven Knitting Patterns Inspired by Books links knitting patterns with the author's research into the making of books and how the printing press changed them. ____________________________________________________ What will be your first Cannonball Read review? #thisthingofpaper #kariewestermann #bookreview #knittingpattern #artsandcrafts #kickstarterbooks #nonfiction #cbr10 ##cannonballread #firstreview #stickingittocancer
I got one!
#12daysofknitmas . Good Intentions. Hmmm, got lots of those.! In fact, may I present to you The Trolley of Good Intentions! All my planned projects with yarn, just waiting to be cast on..... I am making a start though, I've had 5 skeins of John Arbon KBN dk since last February, but I have just found the very pattern to match up with this. It may have involved further book purchasing! But when #thisthingofpaper arrives, I shall cast on #incunabula . Sorted!
My #makenine2018 If it ain't broke... A mix of little dresses and knits, with a crackers #eyeballshawl in there too! 💕 A couple of @deer_and_doe_patterns frocks, the Nightscape jumper, a Pauline Alice shirt dress, @tillybuttons Francoise (2 planned 😊), the eyeball shawl, and three knits from my #thisthingofpaper book (officially obsessed with this book! 😍) #2018makenine #knittersofinstagram #girlswhoknit #sewcialists #sewingisselfcare #makersgonnamake
The expected, the unexpected and the downright hilarious new additions to my bookshelf. I've been coveting the Debbie Zawinski book for months since @lucylocketland told me about it. It's such a beautiful, fascinating book and I'm looking forward to some post Christmas alone time to sit and savour it. Thank you @helenkennedy6255 for such a wonderful, thoughtful surprise. Karie Westerman's book needs no introduction - again, I have coveted this for months. Chock full of patterns; all of which I want to make, with such eloquent writing and stories attached. And finally Jezza. He's the man. Our next PM. Love it to bits. Thank you to my non leftie husband who, by miniscule degrees, is creeping over to our camp. I'll make a comrade of him yet. #imarriedatorywithasmallt #christmashaul #booksarebrill #knittingforever #thisthingofpaper @kariebookish @jeremy_corbynmp @labour_party_uk
I love this book by @kariebookishband my holiday project (one of them) are these mittens. It’s my first attempt at colourwork and first time using @jamiesonsofshetland I need to try and get them looking a bit neater next time! #thisthingofpaper #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #knittersofig #knittersgonnaknit #colourwork #mittenknitting
When friends make excellent books, it leads to excellent mail days ❤️ I finally picked up a copy of @andrearangelknits's wonderfully creative colorwork stitch dictionary, Alterknit, and my eagerly-awaited backer's copy of This Thing of Paper by @kariebookish has also arrived! Feeling very grateful for inspiring friends and colleagues, and looking forward to spending some time with both of these. #knittersofinstagram #thisthingofpaper #alterknit #knittingbooks #diannareads

Many apologies for joining you so intermittently - call me crazy (and some of my friends have done just that!), but we've just decorated this room. Project Dining Room started on the 3rd Dec when with my wonderful boys purchased the required raw materials while I was teaching at the lovely @lucylocketland's and yesterday, came to its near completion with the carpet fitting. Although there are still a few pictures to attach to walls, last night we were finally able to empty the Christmas box and put up the tree while singing along to our favourite Christmas songs. Not usually one so keen on painting (as you may remember from my near-constant moans while doing the kitchen earlier this year), I am delighted with the results - and the other crafting opportunities: I recovered the chairs (scroll left) and have enough fabric leftover to make a table runner (maybe in time for next Christmas!). Keep scrolling for the "before" photo - though this was following a fun but busy time when we had the pleasure of my friend and her family staying with us (hence the additional seating). A firm believer in the magic of Christmas, my copy of @kariebookish's #thisthingofpaper has just made its appearance, perfectly timed to allow me relish its pages in my brand new room. It's the closest that we'll ever get to a library- but at least here I can enjoy a cuppa (and some cake!) 😃 #decoration #homedecoration #homedecorating #christmas #christmasdecorations #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #knittingbooks #kariewestermann #booksforknitters
Home from a few days away, to find Doug guarding my Happy Post, What a fabulous book This Thing of Paper is gorgeous patterns from the wonderfully talented @kariebookish I neeed to knit everything in this book 😝😍 #thisthingofpaper #kariewestermann #knitting #knitstagram #happypost
My second Christmas present (from me to myself) has just arrived. I'm so happy! They are simply fab ... And my 2018 projects list is already full.😁 Sadly I can't start right now: it's Christmas time and I've to knit!!! Fast!! But I was thinking #letterpresscowl (aran 😊), or #wislawacowl (fingering ... mmm) would be perfect for my mom and my cousin. #ilovekntting #knit #knitterofinstagram @kariebookish #thisthingofpaper #knittingoutsidethebox @bristolivy
Frazzled human here and enjoying feet up, knitting time at the end of a busy six day week. Relishing how this Marginalia Jumper from @kariebookish This Thing of Paper is knitting up: lovely pattern and the close up in the second photo shows the beautiful flecks in @thefibrecompany Arranmore Light Loving this Karie, thank you x #fankled #knackeredknittersofinstagram #burntoutlysmanager #jammieson #logburneraglow #thisthingofpaper #marginaliajumper #thefibrecompany #arranmorelight
SUNDAY - After a walk through the snow, I'm spending the rest of my afternoon next to the oven, with my new favorite knitting book and some tea, while switching cake tins every 10 minutes because I'm test baking "spekkoek". I love @kariebookish 's This Thing of Paper. Ever since I was little, books have been extremely important for me. About 7 years ago, knitting became as important as reading, and both will always be a big part of my life. For me, this beautifully written book is a joy to read, making me laugh and cry, with amazing patterns and lovely essays. Karie, thank you for this great gift, I am so very happy I was able to be a tiny part of making this book reality. #thisthingofpaper #knittingbook #abookloversguidetoknitting #bookaholic #bookworm
I received a package from Glasgow today! I contributed to Karie’s Kickstarter campaign last year and I have been eagerly waiting for my copy of her book to arrive. It is absolutely gorgeous! I’m looking forward to reading her essays and knitting her beautiful patterns. Thank you @kariebookish for your lovely book. 💕#thisthingofpaper #indiedesigner #knitting #handmade #knittersofinstagram
