Laura, co-author of Knit So Fine, has a gorgeous sweater, the Ropes and Picots Cardigan, in the Winter 2008 Interweave Knits. It is knit out of a new Rosie's favorite, Scottish Tweed DK in Apple, available in the shop. The sweater embodies what we love about knitting -- classic techniques and vintage inspiration paired with meticulous details in a tweed yarn that manages to be both feminine and rustic.
Also, this month, Courtney has a pair of socks in Carol's new book by Interweave, Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn. Inspired by Anni Albers and traditional fair isle motifs, her socks are a new and gorgeous example of the possibilites of handdyed yarns if you think outside the box. We have her original pair in the shop and copies of the book to pick up as a perfect gift for the sock knitter on your list. Better yet, grab two copies and knit a pair for yourself or as a last minute gift for someone you love. This great book is full of wonderful designs using all of our favorite handpainted yarns, including Koigu and Black Bunny Fibers!
Beautiful job Carol, Courtney and Laura!
