Warm Weather Knits

A new Deborah Newton book! Due out the first of November, 2010, Deborah Newton and LeisureArts are releasing a book of Warm Weather Knits.

From the LeisureArts website:

“Paying attention to shapes, details, pattern stitches and fibers that work especially well for summer, Deborah Newton presents more than 20 sweaters and accessories to knit. The designs use a variety of cool fibers and blends, from classic cottons/linens/blends and lightweight “cool-wool” to new “green” organic and recycled yarns, as well as specialty yarns/blends such as bamboo and soy. Known for her finesse with textured knit stitch patterns and finishing details, Deborah has geared the designs toward a stylish audience, young as well as older, with sporty designs as well as dressy. There are summer cardigans and pullovers; two twin sets (one whisper-weight for hottest days); coordinated family sweaters for man, woman, and child; variations on the indispensable tank top; a tunic worked two ways; a dress; two shawls, and a market bag in two colorways/yarns.”

If the cover picture is any indicator and/or if you love Deborah Newton’s work (Ravelry link) and/or you love the wonderful fibers for summer knitting, this one ought to be a good one! Amazon is taking pre-orders now.

      You know, usually I don’t allow spam posts on my blogs, but I was so charmed that someone actually took the time to post a targeted one and then even asked to leave the spam bit on, that I’ve left this one… :)
