fair isle book jacket

I've almost finshed knitting a cover for a current book project,I found an old knitting book whihc I will rebind and then use this bit of "fabric" to construct the cover.It feel lovely, but very firm, I think I might felt it a little as well just to make it more secure.
more to come!

Most interesting. Is it a book on Fair Isle, perchance? -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
