This book has so very many patterns in it that just really appeal to me, I had to get it in for Earth Faire.
I quote the back cover:
Thoroughly modern, yet endlessly traditional...
Eleven designs selected from the Kelbourne Woolens archive highlight the best of the best from designers Kate Gagnon Osborn and Courtney Kelley. They are gathered together in this compilation and re-edited, rehashed and improved upon for your knitting enjoyment. Included are favorites Springtime Bandit (now written and charted), the Hiker's Waistcoat, and Selbu Modern, among many more garments and accessories.
This collection is an opportunity to properly acknowledge not just the popular designs that put Kelbourne Woolens on the map, but the fans who have been there since the beginning and have given the patterns a life of their own.
With a shared modern vintage aesthetic, Kate Gagnon Osborn and Courtney Kelley have created timeless, wearable designs based on solid knitting techniques. Their first five years of designing for The Fibre Company have been a period of growth and constant innovation beginning with a point-and-shoot camera and a group of eager (and not so eager) friends as models, and evolving into a cohesive line of books and successful patterns for various craft publications. One can only imagine what the next five years will bring!
On this page I copied just a few of the designs within this little book, to give you an idea of the splendor. We knew that the yarns were delicious; now here is a great chance to try out the patterns as well.
