The latest book from Laine Publishing is here – let’s look inside Observations: Knits and Essays from the Forest ($45), by Lotta H. Löthgren.
Lotta H. Löthgren is a writer, knitwear designer, dyer, and yarn shop owner living in a small village in Sweden, a setting that inspired this enchanting collection of essays and knitting patterns.
Observations includes nine knitwear patterns for long-lasting, wearable garments and accessories, along with essays about living a life close to nature.
”The patterns have been created in a quiet conversation with the land, drawing elements from the natural world and translating them into stitches and fabric,” Löthgren writes.
Laine selected beautiful Swiss binding for this hardcover book, a binding technique where the sewn spine is fully visible. It’s as practical as it is pretty – Swiss bound books lay flat when opened, a helpful quality when knitting from a book!
You’ll find Observations ($45) on the teacart with new releases here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop – pick it up if you love texture, colorwork, and thoughtful prose. See you at the shop!
