"Grab your knitting needles and take a peek into the mind of one of the knitting world’s most innovative designers with Knitting Outside the Box by Bristol Ivy.You’ll know Bristol’s classic tailoring and innovative techniques from her patterns and Pom Pom Press is thrilled to bring you her first book. Originating from her workshop of the same name that she has been teaching and developing for four years, this exceeds the standard of the traditional pattern book.Part pattern book and part insight into the design process, Knitting Outside the Box guides the reader (and knitter) through the creative approaches Bristol uses as a designer to explore and push the endless possibilities of knitting. The book includes a comprehensive stitch dictionary which provides technical information on how to shape and manipulate fabric, and concludes by bringing all the methods together to help the reader evolve an idea into a finished pattern."(bron: Ravelry)Ravelrypagina
"This Thing of Paper is a knitting book that urges you to make stuff. Karie Westermann was inspired by her lifelong fascination with books and how all her favourite volumes all fit just so in her hands (much like her favourite pair of knitting needles!). Eleven knitting patterns explore the connections between books and knitting, while the accompanying essays take you from medieval monasteries to contemporary libraries.What does it mean to be a maker? What do handmade things mean to us? Who do we become as we read and knit? All these questions and many more are discussed in a knitting book quite unlike others.The book comes complete with the patterns written in Karie’s signature style, lush photography shot on location, and bespoke graphic design."
