Knitting Library: Everyday

Last fall, Jen Geigley put out a new book of patterns called Everyday, the follow up to 2015's Weekend. As the tech editor for both books, I can't even pretend to give an impartial review, so instead I will share a few of my favorites from Jen's latest collection & let you draw your own conclusions:
Moonstone in Manos del Uruguay Maxima

Leo in Briggs & Little Country Roving

Aura in Wool and the Gang Crazy Sexy Wool

Eris in Lux Adorna 100% Cashmere Bulky

Equinox in Bijou Basin Ranch Xanadu 100% Cashmere

What I love about these designs is that they are simple yet interesting to knit - by that I mean, there aren't a lot of complicated stitch patterns or charts or crazy construction elements that require your undivided attention. But there are interesting design elements that keep the knitter engaged, if that makes sense. Also, I feel like nearly all of them would look just as amazing in handspun yarn, of which I have quite a bit these days.

You can see all of the patterns here on Ravelry, or visit Jen's website to purchase print & PDF copies of Everyday.
