Continuing with all the wooly goodness that is in print these days, I want to share Tolt’s new book with you. Farm to Needle: Stories of Wool is an exploration of American wool producers, processors, dyers, and designers.
Each section of the book highlights a different theme, along with an individual company. At the end of each chapter is a knitting pattern designed for the wool highlighted in the chapter, along with a profile on the pattern designer.
It’s hard to say what’s more exciting – the stories of wool or the patterns. All are beautiful and well thought out. And of course, the photographs are stunning.
You can’t miss the story of all the care that goes into Twirl yarns, or the Mysig cardigan, which has quickly jumped to the top of my must-knit list. There’s also the Anna Vest, Karen Templer’s modern take on a World War II era men’s vest pattern.
If you haven’t heard of Farm to Needle yet, that’s probably because it was just released earlier this month. It’s an incredible collection of stories and patterns, and I can already tell it’s going to be a longtime favorite of many.
