Today I am very pleased to bring you a review of a lovely book by Kirsti Johanson entitled Tahoe Knits. I was first introduced to Kirsti and her work while working on Jane Austen Knits and I have always found her pieces both beautiful and inspiring.
Her newest project, a self-published knitting book inspired by nature and hiking, is a unique collaboration with a few of her very talented students. High school junior Jemima Liposcak created some lovely pen & ink illustrations which pepper the pages, high school senior Claire Wisniewski composed a poem for each chapter, and college student Britt Stevens wrote an essay for each chapter as well. Kirsti's students also modeled for the book, making it a true creative collective.
This beautiful collection of knitted accessories is accompanied by thoughtful essays, poems, and even a recipe for Cherry Almond Scones- they look delicious! Knitting instructions are both written and charted, and the photographs are beautiful. You can see all of the patterns from Tahoe Knits here on Ravelry.
The best part? Kirsti is graciously offering to gift one print copy and two digital copies of her new book to three of you lucky knitters.Comments are now closed for this drawing. Congratulations to Gobzone, TerryLee, and MarianHooks for winning! Thanks!
