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. Among the 26 contributors to "My Grandmother's Knitting "are STC Craft authors Wendy Bernard (Custom Knits series), Teva Durham (Loop-d-Loop series), Norah Gaughan ("Knitting Nature"), Joan McGowan-Michael ("Knitting Lingerie Style"), and Leigh Radford (AlterKnits series and "One More Skein") as well as many other popular designers such as Jared Flood, Cookie A., Ysolda Teague, Anne Hanson, Kay Gardiner, and Meg Swansen.
Larissa Brown is a writer, blogger and fibre artist. She's the author, together with her husband Martin John Brown, of Knitalong: Celebrating the Tradition of Knitting Together. Since 2002, she's written the blog Stitch Marker.
