Great review on WhipUp.net | Bay Area Book Photographer

Thank you Kathreen for a lovely review on the book!

Vintage knits for modern babies has a distinctive poetic aesthetic that I am drawn into, the designs have a vitality and depth that rocks gently back and forth between pragmatism and romanticism and the photographs are of a fantastic quality.

Many of the patterns in this book are designed for using some of the amazing alternative yarns that are so easily available now – organic cotton, angora and alpaca and wonderfully soft blends specially designed for babies – these are described in the introduction along with a short but easy to follow techniques section for some of the extra bits that are included in some of the patterns (such as knitted motifs, embroidery + pompoms).

The designs are suitable for beginners to more experienced knitters – and for newborns to toddlers – there is a sweet layette outfit in garter stitch – perfect for the beginner knitter, knitted bunnies and a most adorable double breasted ‘car coat’ for little girls – so so gorgeous – with a darling little collar and matching beret (intermediate knitters).
