When most people think of their grandmother's knitting, they might not immediately see the connection to a modern knitter's life. But in My Grandmother's Knitting , Larissa Brown shows us that nothing could be further from the truth. Many of today's hippest and most popular knitters found their passion for knitting under the tutelage of their grandmother or another revered family member, and in this book, they share stories and patterns inspired by their memories and their gratitude. Among the 26 contributors to My Grandmother's Knitting are STC Craft authors Wendy Bernard (Custom Knits series), Teva Durham (Loop-d-Loop series), Norah Gaughan ( Knitting Nature ), Joan McGowan-Michael ( Knitting Lingerie Style ), and Leigh Radford (AlterKnits series and One More Skein ) as well as many other popular designers such as Jared Flood, Cookie A., Ysolda Teague, Anne Hanson, Kay Gardiner, and Meg Swansen. Praise for My Grandmother's Knitting : "This is a pattern book with a twist. . . . Full of useful information and easy-to-knit garments, Custom Knits 2 is a good choice for knitters looking to adapt designs and venture into designing their own garments." -- Creative Knitting Magazine "In [ My Grandmother's Knitting ], Brown weaves family stories and early knitting memories of her interview subjects into poignant evidence that today's knitters have a strong connection to the knitters who came before them." -- CraftSanity "This is a thoroughly charming book . . . A heartfelt celebration of shared creativity." "Wonderful family stories are shared by those such as Meg Swansen, Norah Gaughan, Kirsten Kapur and Kay Gardiner. The projects in this book, as you can imagine, with the star-studded lineup of designers, are a beautiful assortment of accessories and women's garments. The look and feel of this book is so inviting and beautiful, with lovely photography by Michael Crouser. In all ways, this book is a true work of art and heart." -- Petite Purls
