The In-Depth Look:
Have you met Ann Weaver?
Her designs have been floating around the knitting universe for a while and you may have seen her fabulous Oranje cardigan as the recent Knitty surprise. (I’ve actually seen it in person and am telling you it’s even more gorgeous than it looks in the photos.)
The point is that, even if you don’t know her (designs) yet, you should. And if you get the chance to meet her in person, that much the better. I was lucky enough to last month and she gave me a copy of her book to review.
Book? Well, yes, that’s what I’m trying to tell you. She’s got a self-published collection of ten of her patterns and they’re lovely.
Her designs lean in the simple, non-fussy direction, but are anything but boring. Great colors, sharp accents, unexpected touches … even log-cabin-inspired designs. (It’s no wonder the ladies at Mason-Dixon Knitting love them.)
This self-published collection of ten patterns–hat, scarves, mittens, shawl, sweaters–is a delight, and it’s available at her site, Weaverknits.
