Folk Shawls: 25 knitting patterns and tales from around the world

Cheryl Oberle

Recommended by: Sheila U

Lately, I've been fascinated by lace knitting.  Folk Shawls is a wonderful source of beautiful pattern ideas for lace work, and stories about the areas and people who created them.  Another place I've found great lace information is one of the new digital magazines offered by the library, through Zinio (http://www.scpls.org/zinio).  The magazine Piecework is a great source of information about lace-making in various forms, including knitting.

Me Talk Pretty One Day

A friend recently told me he wanted to start reading David Sedaris, but wasn't sure where to start.  As someone who has read every book Sedaris has published, it was a tough call.  But "Me Talk Pretty One Day" is probably my all-time favorite and a great one to start with.  You'll meet Sedaris' quirky family and enjoy his wonderful stories.
