  2. SPP77, The Surprise Vest

    SPP77, The Surprise Vest

    Cully Swansen

    From $11.99

    The Baby Surprise Jacket has only grown in popularity since Elizabeth Zimmermann knit the first one for her grandson, Cully, 50 years ago! Now, coming full-circle, Cully has designed a pair of Surprise Vests, which, similar to the BSJ, capture the exciting transformation that - with a couple of folds - turns a mysterious mass of knitting into a beautiful garment.

    The elegant Fair Isle Surprise Vest is truly revolutionary for Fair Isle construction. The beautiful OXOs and Peeries of a traditional Fair Isle are led on a surprising path during the knitting, resulting in a pleasing puzzle that, when folded and woven, reveals a striking mitered-front. Two different methods for Fair Isle construction are included.

    A similar exciting puzzle awaits with the Garter Stitch Surprise Vest. No steeks - simply a couple of increase points (like on the BSJ) and the mystery grows throughout the knitting; then, voila - a cozy, attractive vest.

    Full instructions for both vests, with multiple sizes up to 46" Fair Isle and up to 50" Garter, and plenty of images; 12 pgs in a protective archival sheet protector.

    Knit in Jamieson's Shetland (Fair Isle) and Unspun Icelandic (Garter Stitch) or Canadian Regal (Garter Stitch)

  5. Saltwater Mittens

    Saltwater Mittens

    Christine LeGrow and Shirley A. Scott
    $29.95

    From the Island of Newfoundland, More than 20 Heritage Designs to Knit. Woolen mittens have long been a Newfoundlander’s best friend. In a quirky climate of freeze, thaw, blow, and drizzle, good mittens made all tasks easier—to split birch, hammer a nail, gut a fish, draw water, hang clothes, or snare a rabbit. Social life, too, always required the finest mittens and gloves. These mittens are as practical as they are beautiful—double-knit with two colours means twice the warmth and wind resistance. The patterns are rated by difficulty and varied in style, including wristers, gloves, thumbless mitts for babies, and of course classic mittens for all. The dozens of colour photographs will inspire you to make your own bold colour choices. Plus, the nuggets of history, and tales of mittens and their knitters, make this a book everyone can enjoy. The two authors have been collecting, knitting, and studying Newfoundland mittens for the past 40 years, and have expertly and painstakingly recreated these heritage patterns with detailed instructions.
