Brave New Knits

Brave New Knits by Julie Turjoman cofounder of Ravelrycom is the first book to celebrate the convergence of traditional hand knitting and modern technology The Internet has made it possible for the knitting community to connect through photos pattern sharing and blogs that document the knitting projects and passions of dozens of designers and enthusiast. To my surprise my local public library acuired this book Their craft book budget has plummeted to nearly nothing over the past couple of years I made sure to check it out right away and then renew it to communicate interest And because I wasn t done with it yetThis book features 26 short essays about prominent knit bloggers as well as a pattern from each I uite enjoyed reading the pieces Some were about knitters I know a lot about Anne Hanson Clara Parkes and others were new to me I ll be adding some blogs to my feed reader The patterns are a potluck mix of garments and accessories There are several photographs of each item so generally you can get a good look at it though I noticed one hemline is not falling properly and is mostly cropped out of the picture My only criticism is that the garment photo usually falls on the second page of the pattern so you have to flip back and forth when looking at the basic info like specified yarn needle size techniue etcSprinkled among the pages are definitions of knitblog jargon I didn t find any surprises here but these would be helpful and informative for a new knitter to get up to speed on the lingo and may be fascinating to knitters reading this 50 years henceWill I be making anything from this book Hmmm I like Jared Flood s Woodsmoke Scarf which is a simple garter stitch rectangle with a pleasing lace border in a slightly contrasting yarn I m oddly drawn to Kirsten Kapur s Sockstravaganza which features a busy mix of techniues that work well together stranded knitting and cables these are the socks on the cover by the way Clara Parkes Foxgloves are simple and sweet fingerless mitts though I was surprised that she used a 100% merino wool knowing that one of her chief goals is to educate knitters about other breeds of sheep maybe that was an editor s call Clara s mitts would make a thoughtful uick gift And if I wanted to make a lace scarf Kathy Veeza s Lubov Scarf is a nice one that uses geometric patterns than floral ones which are so common in lace
