Lucy Main Tweet is the author of "Knitologie", creating personal heirloom knits as simply as casting on and casting off. This book is a combination of her passion for needlepoint and her love of knitting.
This book is for the beginner knitter who wants to knit a gift with style and taste. Personalize your work with a monogram in block letters. Lucy says, "Be proud of your name, your initials, your monogram." If you can cast on, cast off, knit and purl you can quickly and easily accomplish the 18 projects that include home decor, gifts for babies and adult accessories.
There are wonderful snippets from her Mom's journey in stitches. Her tips on tools, yarn and color use will have you taking notes. You will be introduced to Coco. Her four legged friend whose name comes from the first letters of cast on cast off.
Beautifully photographed, this over sized hardbound classic and sophisticated knitting book would look great on the coffee table and make a wonderful gift.
This is a cap pattern (from the book) for a newborn baby girl. The photograph next to the project is incorrect. The slideshow above has a picture of the finished hat.
