a stitch in time
It’s taken me a few days to post about it, but last weekend was the launch of the brand new book, A Stitch in Time, by Jane Waller and Susan Crawford. I’d been on the waiting list for this book to come out for so long, and I pre-ordered it at the I Knit Day, so was thrilled when it finally arrived in the post.
It’s not an entirely new book, but rather a re-working of the original published in 1972, featuring vintage patterns from the 1920s to 40s. Susan has done a great job with the styling and photography to bring everything up to date and in modern yarns, looking suitably gorgeous. The designs are very wearable, and there will be a few heading in to my queue. Perfect for a cardigan girl like myself.
There was a great turnout for the launch, and it was a great chance to see the knits in real life. Craig took some great pictures – check them out on the I Knit Blog. The seagull swimsuit is an absolute winner!
I love the fact that the book is clearly titled Volume 1; I’d love to know what’s in store next.
