Libraries are awesome

A woman in my knitting group got the most amazing knitting book through interlibrary loan called Unexpected Knitting by Debbie New. This book is incredibly inspiring and shows a bunch of freeform knitting. It shows the potential of knitting as an art form, not just a craft. The book does not contain detailed instructions for most of the items featured, but does give intermediate or advanced knitters a jumping off point for some very creative projects.

I just got a book out of the library called Origamido by Michael Lafosse, which is a very similar sort of book, only with origami instead of knitting. Again, not much in the way of detailed instructions, but a beautiful, inspirational book.
