In FOUR-STRANDED KNITTING: It’s Easier Than You Think, I explain and demonstrate a wonderfully simple and elegant method for knitting with four strands in one round. Adding one more strand of color opens up a universe full of new design possibilities! I have included charts, a video tutorial and five of my new patterns.
We live at a time of heightened public awareness concerning the health of our planet. Questions concerning the very existence of life on Earth are being raised by scientists. We are told much of the problem is a result of human over-consumption and waste of our world’s resources. We have been encouraged to take note of, and shrink, the size of our carbon footprint, both as individuals and as a global society. Rather than live in fear of the predicted consequences of our frivolous, careless wastefulness, we endeavor to change Earth’s ecological trajectory, one person at a time, and one small step at a time. We recycle. We conserve. We look for ways to be less wasteful.
Knitting 20th Century Art is a loose-knit survey of 20th-Century Art Movements, explained and interpreted through the medium of yarn and needles. I am writing it for people, like me, whose knowledge of art history would fit neatly on the tip of a knitting needle. With room to spare. It is a humorous approach to the topic that informs a little, but encourages a lot—a lot of giggles. The ten knitting patterns included were inspired by recognizable art styles from the 20th century. What I deem as silly when hanging in oils on a wall, I find stunning when knitted into a garment or accessory and hanging on a person. But, this book will also appeal to art history buffs, as it will expose them to the idiocy and ignorance of their lessers. The text will prove be irresistibly amusing. And the knitted pieces, for art aficionados, will have an intrinsically deeper meaning.
