Every porch swing—or Adirondack chair or hammock—needs a pillow or two for kicking back with the crossword puzzle on Sunday afternoon or stargazing on a hot summer night. This one is textured with cables that recall the vines and leaves in one of Chrissy Gardiner’s childhood meadows. Its classic cable motif contrasts playfully with 1950s-style bark cloth backing.

About the book…..

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.

This book is available for preorder on amazon and will be released September 1, 2011.
