Kate Davies’ newest book is here! Let’s look inside Sark ($28).
Davies’ newest collection is focused on twisted stitches, shown in delicate natural shades of wool that show off the embossed appearance of the texture patterns.
Davies took inspiration from designer Norah Gaughan and her recent Twisted Stitch Sourcebook. Sark includes an interview between Davies and Gaughan, and it’s a pleasure to listen in on their conversation.
All of the projects in this book are knit with Kate Davies’ own line of yarn, Ooskit, a DK weight wool. We don’t have it here at the shop, though we wish we could, but we have a great many excellent substitutes – Isager Jensen, Kelbourne Woolens Scout, Brooklyn Tweed Arbor, Fibre Co. Acadia, and more. We’re happy to help you come up with yarn and color substitutions!
Come by the shop to browse this and other Kate Davies books – she’s a favorite of ours, so we do try to keep her books in good stock! Currently we have Inkling, Bluestockings, Yokes, West Highland Way, Milarrochy Heids, Warm Hands, Inspired by Islay, Ten Years in the Making, Shore, Colours of Shetland, The Book of Haps, and Davies’ memoir, Handywoman.
