              An introduction to the wide world of knitting by way of making your own hat Knitting is an excellent handcraft and something people love the world over. But for the crafting faint of heart, knitting can appear daunting; you need needles (but what size?), yarn (but what weight?), ...and a pattern (but what kind?). Very quickly, knitting becomes another language that&;s tricky to navigate and even trickier to master. Knit a Hat teaches you everything you need to know about the previously scary craft: the needles you&;ll need, the yarn to use, and tried-and-true techniques to get you started, keep you going, and help you wrap everything up. Alanna Okun is an expert knitter and o?ers very accessible instructions: Her idea of starting with a hat rather than a long scarf is sure to make this book easy for even the wariest of beginners. Building on our crafting how-to series, Alanna welcomes readers into the knitting community and invites them to knit a hat with con?dence.

              The essential guide to using simple twisted stitches to add interest and beauty to handknits Master the simple and addictive art of the twisted stitch. The basics are easy to learn, and the design possibilities (and twist combinations that come to light once you begin) are almost... endless. The book starts with a treasure trove of twisted stitch variations, starting with patterns made from diagonals and building from there-adding horizontal and vertical elements, combining twisted stitches with lace or polygon knitting, and pushing boundaries with patterns that twist stitches in every row for more advanced textures. The book offers 125-plus stitch patterns, along with guidance on how the twists are engineered and how knitters can create designs of their own. Norah's always-clear instructions are presented in a conversational, easy-to-understand voice that proceeds naturally as one twisted stitch leads to the next. Readers can test their newfound skills with the 15 garment patterns included-irresistible designs for hats, wraps, sweaters, and more.

              Learn how to create rooms filled with warmth, meaning, and your own unique story of home Kim Leggett's first book, City Farmhouse Style, was a big hit. Now Kim is back with the welcoming interiors her fans crave and a no-rules approach that is all about using what you love to cre...ate rooms that tell your personal story. Everyone has a story worth telling, and every room can become part of that story-whether you decorate it with heirlooms, flea market finds, simple mementos, or a mix. In Home Stories, Leggett shows readers how to use all these treasures to design very special rooms filled with interest and meaning. She begins by asking readers what it is that attracts them to a certain piece: Thinking hard about what really speaks to you, and then using it as the basis for design, is the secret behind all of the best, most interesting rooms. Each chapter presents fascinating spaces and the stories behind the accessories, furnishings, and mementos that fill them. There are plenty of projects, too, plus practical design guidance and design inspiration for refreshing decor as the seasons change.

              Learn to make beautiful, natural arrangements with foraged and seasonal greenery, branches, and flowers Based on her extraordinarily popular flower workshops, Chelsea Fuss's first book combines an alluring sense of place with everything readers need to know to forage, gather, and... arrange fresh and dried botanicals. Each arrangement is addictively easy to make, and the featured centerpieces, wreaths, garlands, and bouquets are designed to bring the perfect amount of scent, color, and atmosphere to a room. The book features 28 eco-friendly floral projects, all using natural materials in lieu of floral foam and wire. Each arrangement is accompanied by foraging tips that can be applied to different locales. Photographed in the author's small village in Portugal, the book overflows with atmospheric images of flowers and foliage in the landscape to inspire readers to walk local trails (even if that just means the stalls of a city market) and gather ingredients in a pastime that is as much self-care and meditation as it is a practical pursuit.

              The official book of the 130th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower, one of the most famous monuments in the world At 1,063 feet (324 meters) high, the Tower is a symbol-of Paris and of France, and of modernity. Since its creation in 1889, the Eiffel Tower has been hailed as a feat of... architectural and engineering prowess, one that still reflects the best of what France has to offer the world. Known in France as the Dame de Fer, or Iron Lady, the Tower is the embodiment of a Parisian woman: seductive and always superbly dressed to impress the 6 million visitors she receives each year. This beautiful two-sided book celebrates the dual identity of the Tower: It opens from one side to offer a behind-the-scenes look at the technical aspects of the monument, and from the other side to show off the star herself, the Tower as an icon of France, an inspiration to artists and designers, a symbol of peace and freedom, and so much more.

              A guide to knitting, making, and living a slow and thoughtful lifestyle all year long Slow Knitting introduced crafters to a process of more mindful making through five basic tenets: source carefully, make thoughtfully, think seasonally, experiment fearlessly, and explore openly.... Now, this seasonal approach encourages knitters to delve deeper into those concepts, applying them to everyday making through a series of essays, projects, and patterns that explore the life of a knitter throughout the year. Organized similarly to a seasonal planting guide or farmer's almanac, each chapter and section is designed to identify and encourage small ways that knitters may begin to employ noticeable change: organizing your yarn stash, carving out time for knitting, and starting on that baby blanket in a timely manner. The ideas explored here add up to a fuller, more mindful year, all through the joyful experience that is knitting.

              To Be Honest

              To Be Honest (Hardback)

              A memoir about one man's strange upbringing in a family fanatically devoted to honesty Raised in what he affectionately calls our little honesty cult, Michael Leviton was ingrained with his parents' core philosophy: You do not tell any lies; you do not withhold the truth; and you... speak your mind always, regardless of how offensive or hurtful your opinions may be. For young Michael, this freedom to be yourself-despite being bullied and ostracized at school-felt liberating. By the time Leviton was 29 years old, he had told three (what most people would consider) lies in his entire life. But his parents' enthusiasm for just being honest bordered on extreme. After Michael graduated high school and left home, truth telling-in job interviews, on dates, in social interactions-slowly lost its luster. When the only woman who ever appreciated his honesty brought this radical approach to truth into their relationship, Michael decided it was time to embrace the power of lying. To Be Honest is a quirky, tender, and wry story of a man discovering what it means and how it feels to lie in one's daily life.

              Francois-Xavier Delmas writes passionately about his travels around the world, his expertise, his in-depth knowledge of tea-producing countries and his most memorable experiences, as well as the people he meets, both in flee For more than thirty years, he has been tirelessly visi...ting plantations around the globe in search of the finest teas. In countries such as India, China, Nepal, Japan, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Malawi and Kenya, he seeks out the rarest and above all the best products to delight tea aficionados, from new enthusiasts to seasoned connoisseurs. In 1999, he founded the Tea School to share his expertise with a wider public. This training and tasting center has been offering a tea sommelier diploma course since 2016. These evocative texts and the magnificent photos that accompany them shine a light on local customs and traditions and pay tribute to the artisans who produce the delicious teas we can buy and taste for ourselves. Every page holds the promise of a new discovery that will deepen your knowledge and love of tea. For a long time, I dreamt of a profession that would take me to faraway places and allow me to meet people from different backgrounds and cultures, people who don't speak my language, who don't have the same experiences as me. I found tea by chance. By accident. I founded Palais des Thes and my work became a passion. I gave my job a name: tea researcher. -Francois-Xavier Delmas
