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.
Ysolda Teague’s sweet mitts mix classic wool with a contemporary fingerless design and delicate picot edging.
Pretty but sturdy, they invite the knitter to play with color combinations that might conjure up a walk in the
woods at twilight or a picnic on a brilliant spring day. Ysolda named them for her grandfather, William, a
Renaissance man who not only knit sweaters for young Ysolda but also made violins.
