  1. Deep Roots, Patterns Inspired by the Tallgrass Prairie
    $27.00

    Deep Roots, Patterns Inspired by the Tallgrass Prairie, Denise Bell and Chris Dykes. As the subtitle tells you, the designer (Denise) and her photographer/essayist husband (Chris) took repeated long trips to the Tallgrass Prairie - which stretches from Oklahoma, through Kansas, and into Nebraska. Their observances are recorded through many beautiful photos, interesting essays, and Denise’s lovely knitting designs: Two scarves, a color-patterned blanket, lace shawl, poncho, and full length Frost Flower lace skirt.

    Eleven signature designs, with stories of the sweater that changed the shape of modern knitting. We are anxious to see all of these lovely designs collected into one volume (we have had sneak previews on Kate's website). Kate has included Elizabeth Zimmermann in her dedication, as she was heavily influenced by EPS (Elizabeth's Percentage System). Readers will also meet both Kristin Olsen and Meg Swansen in interviews. Softcover. Learn More
  3. Knitsonik, Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook
    $27.00

    A knitting book that shows you how to turn everyday inspirations into gorgeous stranded colourwork. Upon seeing a splendid landscape, or garden, or grocery-store display, how many of us have had a flicker of knitting scamper across our brains? This is the mode used by Felicity Ford to conjure up her idiosyncratic and wonderful color patterns (the 8 Practical Exercises on page 11 will cause you to 'see' anew). She then gives you a step-by-step process to choose colors, sketch the motif, and knit a series of swatches. An altogether lovely and unique book. Softcover. Learn More
  4. Working with Wool: A Coast Salish Legacy & the Cowichan Sweater
    $38.95

    Cowichan sweaters - the iconic garments originated by the Coast Salish women in the early 1900s - are featured in this fascinating book, which concentrates on the historic impact of this knitting movement. The knitters “experienced grinding poverty, destructive racism, government paternalism, and cultural appropriation, but they battled back, using their sweaters to survive and to disprove the stereotypes that excluded them from the mainstream society and economy." Spectacular photos are plentiful - ranging from 1894 to The Big Lebowski - and the narrative is most engaging. Hardcover, 328pp. Learn More

    Sweater 101

    Cheryl Brunette
    $32.95

    I am delighted to see this valuable book back in print and immediately delved into Cheryl's extensive sizing-section to start a new sweater for my far-away granddaughter. Schematics for 30 standard sizes in 3 basic garment-shapes for kids, women and men, from size 6-months to men's size 50. That is a small taste of the useful, practical and unique data divulged by the author. Actually, her More-or-Less Right Formula is worth the price of the book unto itself. Wonderful! Concealed spiral-bound/hc. Learn More
