  1. Making Marls

    Making Marls

    Cecelia Campochiaro
    $65.00

    Making Marls is a ground-breaking, lushly illustrated, and beautifully made book about multistrand handknitting and the creation of marled fabrics. The technique is as simple as knitting multiple strands of yarn together. With this approach, any knitter can invent a vast number of textured and colored fabrics. As with her first book, Sequence Knitting, author Cecelia Campochiaro takes a systematic look at a subject that has been hiding in plain sight for centuries. In Making Marls, the word “sequence” is used to describe the order of marl stripes, rather than the stitch sequences in Sequence Knitting. There are common-strand sequences, bridging sequences, sequences from gradient sets, complex sequences, and even improvisational sequences. The book can be approached on three levels: • A reference book about multistrand handknitting • A pattern book with over thirty “recipes” • A source book for designers and knitters who want to work with many colors Regardless of whether one is new to knitting or a seasoned expert, this book will delight and inspire. Published in 2020.

  10. Peace Baby Sweater - SPP79

    Peace Baby Sweater - SPP79

    Mary Kay McDermott

    From $7.99

    In Memory of Anne Frank. Mary Kay McDermott writes, “…..I opened the pages [of a magazine] to a picture of 2 year old Anne Frank from May, 1931. She is wearing a lovely knitted sweater with matching rompers. The cardigan is joined with classic pearl buttons as well as a pin to accommodate her full and robust toddler frame. This knitting shows much love, as it was well worn and used for a valued portrait…..”

    Mary Kay had just visited Auschwitz, Poland when she saw the photo of Anne at 2. Inspired by the photograph, she designed a beautiful, flattering, and functional baby cardigan as a tribute to Anne, Anne's family, and her legacy, with a hope for peace. A unique tie-in for this tribute sweater is the fact that Mary Kay’s husband has worked for years with the Commemorative Air Force, which restored an original C-47. That plane will fly to France for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, and Mary Kay’s Peace Sweater will be aboard for the flight.

    In honor of Anne Frank and those who fought for freedom, all profits from this pattern will be donated to The Anne Frank House (annefrank.org) and the Commemorative Air Force (commermorativeairforce.org).

    Worsted weight at 5-5.5 st/in. Regal or Ultra Alpaca.
