Vintage Modern Knits

I have been waiting for Vintage Modern Knits from Kate Gagnon Osborn and Courtney Kelley at Kelbourne Woolens. The book features the beautiful yarns of The Fibre Company, and we have a nice selection of several of their yarns. I wanted to share a few of my favorite designs.

The beautiful cover sweater is the Adelaide Yoke Pullover in Terra.

Maple Bay Cardigan in Organik: Yangtze Cardigan in Canopy Fingering: Cady Twisted-Stitch Mittens in Canopy Fingering: Ajiro Scarf in Road to China Light: Margarethe Lace Shawl in Road to China Light: Whitby Stockings in Canopy Fingering: The projects in the book employ a wide range of techniques: fair isle, intarsia, twined knitting, Swedish bohus, cabling, lace, and Estonian roositud. This book would be perfect for your collection if you're interested in trying something new in some fabulous yarns. Come by and take a look.
