GoodKnit Kisses Books

Books by Kristen Mangus

This page contains links to products I sell on, Ravelry and Etsy.

You all know how much I love my yarn crafts.  One of my goals at GoodKnit Kisses is to share my knowledge with you.  To help you out I’ve compiled some of my best content, charts, tools, patterns and more into books.

I know that in this digital age so much of what I do is online, but I still take notes with a paper and pencil.  Having a physical book to use is important for many of us so I expanded what I do to include books.

Knitting Loom Guide (2020)

The GoodKnit Kisses’ Knitting Loom Guide is an essential resource book for loom knitters. This book is loaded with information about knitting looms. It’s NOT a “how-to” book* that teaches you to loom knit, but it’s a tool to help you find the best loom for your project. You can quickly and easily find the loom you’re looking for in the intuitive, organized charts. For more information see my blog post, NEW Knitting Loom Guide.

NOTE: This book is updated annually in the fall to add new looms that were released during the previous year.

Yarn Project Organizer & Workbook (2018)

I created this handy workbook to help you stay organized while you loom knit, crochet and needle knit throughout the year.  This 130-page book includes tear-out sheets to track your current projects, log your donations, sales or gifts, and inventory your tools. For more information about this book read my blog post, Yarn Project Organizer & Workbook.

[NOTE: This book is also available without perforated pages as the Knit & Crochet Planner]
