Around age 12 or 13, Robin Melanson’s grandmother knit her a big, bold, green acrylic vest worked entirely in raspberry stitch. As a designer, Robin works with more understated grace, often finding inspiration in the delicate lines and enchanting style of the 1940s. These ladylike gloves are something her grandma might have worn for a lovely outing long before her acrylic bobble days.
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.
