  1. A House Filled with Music

    A House Filled with Music

    Margret Rettig
    $28.00

    Meg Swansen was smitten by this children's book in which the reader/listener is introduced to symphonic instruments through a most beguiling story, charming illustrations, and enchanting music. Schoolhouse Press obtained the subsidiary rights and had it translated into English; then Meg returned to Austria to record the voice-over for the accompanying CD, which is included with the book. A wonderful musical treat for all ages. Hardcover.

  2. Barbara Abbey's Knitting Lace
    $24.00

    By popular demand (and lobbying from Sandy Terp), this classic book is back in print, now in hardcover. There appears to be another swell of interest in lace knitting; wonderful. This book is one of only two I know of that is dedicated to lace edgings (and the other has been out of print for many years); 100 edgings to be exact, plus some background lace and instructions for doilies. An excellent—and unique—resource. (What?? New hardcover edition costs even less than the previous paperback? Even so.) Learn More

    Armenian Knitting & Free Bowknot Pattern

    Joyce Williams and Meg Swansen
    $24.00

    Click to download the free Bowknot Sweater Pattern  Armenian Knitting is a marvelous technique in which the motif color is carried throughout the plain part of the garment (trapped across the back) until it is needed. Made famous in the US by Elsa Schiaparelli's Bowknot sweater (free pattern link below), the authors have taken this technique to a whole new level, featuring designs such as Joyce's Knit/Purl pullover, Olive Branch, and Lily Jacket, and Meg's two versions of a Monarch pullover. They get you started with three hats for practice. Innovative garment shaping; all techniques described fully including three choices of how to trap. Hardcover.
