- The Best Of Knitscene?
- A message from the USA TODAY NETWORK?
Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. It even has several beginner-level accessory projects. The photography is big, bright and detailed, easy to see and follow along with instructions. Deborah Newton successfully does for finishing in her new book, Finishing School , what she did for designing in her classic book Designing Knitwear. Finishing School is meticulously detailed, rich with illustration and photography.
She backs up nearly every technique with a personal story or anecdote. I found myself being drawn in again and again reading for pages about seaming or inserting pockets. Because she has 20 years of designing and finishing she says she has contract knitters knit for her but she still does all of her own finishing for publication she gives concrete examples of when to use a particular technique and to what effect, and shows before and after photos.
It was great to see her own swatches throughout the book she says no swatch should be smaller than 8x8" and how she uses them, not just for stitch gauge, but also to design nearly every element in a sweater. This is a fantastic book for every level of knitter. Newbies will learn it right the first time and more experienced knitters will have more beautifully finished garments. I remember the first teaser photo Cooperative Press showed of this book: a stack of brightly colored folded lace shawls.
Now the book is here and it lives up to that sexy little teaser. They pick out the yarn and the stitch patterns, they even swatch, and then they freak out. The freaking out comes from making the lace be a certain shape. It begins with math. Yes, I said it the four-letter knitting word, math.
Also there are charts. So she starts with basic lace math and charts then jumps right into the shawls.
She shows how to shape 10 shawls: 2 rectangular shawls, 2 square shawls, and 6 triangular shawls — yes, circular and semicircular are not included. In the intro she says she working with straight lines in this book. For each shawl, she first explains the basic shaping in words and illustrations, then uses a shawl pattern to demonstrate it in the real knitting world.
