This was a first for me.  I wrote this post, posted it, I got a few comments, then after a few hours, it disappeared.  So, I'm trying it again.  Here's Kim's patterns from her most recent book, Grace.  So many beautiful, feminine details; so many lovely silhouettes.  I love everything she does.

Loving - Kidsilk Haze and Fine Lace
Jess - Alpaca Merino DK

Barrett - Kidsilk Haze

Agyle - Brushed Fleece and Kidsilk Haze

Keepsake - Kidsilk Haze
Adair - Alpaca Merion DK

 Emma - Big Wool

Blackened - Brushed Fleece

Sentiment - Super Fine Merino 4ply

Pitch - Brushed Fleece

 Kidsilk Haze and Fine Lace

Scape - Kid Classic and Kidsilk Haze

Esme - Kidsilk Haze and Fine Lace

 Gift - KIdsilk Haze

Escape - Super Fine Merino 4ply

Elin - Alpaca Merino DK

Cecily - Super Fine Merino 4ply

 Fell - Big Wool

Isla - Kidsilk Haze and Fine Lace

As a long time fan, I naturally love them all, but do have a few favorites: 
the first two, Loving and Jess, and the last one, Isla.  I'd love to know your favorites. 
You can leave a comment here.  And thank you!

You can purchase Kim's new book here on her website.
As it's just new it should be at your local yarn stores very soon.

Edited 11/22:  A few readers have asked when the shops will start to carry this book.  I don't know exactly how book distribution works for the shops, but my lys, Uncommon Threads, has a standing order from certain publishers to receive new knitting books as they are published, so she gets them right away.  It should also be available online at your favorite online knitting store, at least for pre-order.  A quick Google search found Grace at English Yarns Online Knitting Store.

  1. Greetigs from Europe, my prefered are Love, Gift, Esme and Agyle but the others are lovely too.By the way I want to tell you that it is always a big pleasure to read your blog.
    Have a nice day.

    1. Thank you Jeannine. I love Gift and Esme too. It was not easy just picking a few.

  2. A few comments came to my email box but didn't make it to blogger, so I'm going to post them myself: From Ellen:
    I love the idea of using Fine Lace and Kidsilk Haze together, two favorites of mine, so I might end up making one of those. Do you know if it knits up as a DK or Worsted Weight? My answer to Ellen is, I remember knitting them together before and the fabric was surprisingly warm. It did knit up as a DK for me. Kristen

    From Anonymous: My favorite would have to be Argyle! It's gorgeous!

  3. Good heavens,how to choose one! I do love Kim's books,i can see myself wearing everything but I will probably knit Cecily and Escape,i am in the mood for cables.

    1. Funny you say that. I just got in the mood for cables so cast on for a little cabled baby sweater to assuage it!

  4. Loving, I really like that one and Barrett. I like several others but would probably fall in love with something from her next book before I got around to finishing my two favorites from this one! :)

    1. I love stripes and it's funny how effective they are! So eye-catching and so easy to do!

  5. Oh my goodness! They are all beautiful. Hard to choose. Where can I get this book?

    1. Hi Carla: Here is the direct link: It's new and the stores should be getting it soon.

  6. Love Esmeralda and Islamic. :-) Cheryl

  7. Finding something flattering is always an issue for me. Gift would have the least amount to tweak. But I also would like to HAVE Argyle in similar soft colors, although would probably never undertake it myself. I like short simple projects these days. I also love Kidsilk Haze as a carry-along yarn (so sumptuous that way) and may attempt a simple shawl with that some day. I remember how you said how sorry you were to finish the Kidsilk Stripe one. Like an old friend. :-) Chloe

    1. Hi Chloe. Flattering is always the issue. I find I have pretty good luck with Kim's patterns. I do have to tweak them, mostly by adding length.

  8. Hi again, Kristen. My tweaking has always been the opposite: subtracting length. Luckily those are easy tweaks-) Thanks for all your wonderful knitting tips and recipes! Chloe
