Muhu Island Book Just In
Susan and I made a special trip to pick up 10 copies of this extraordinary book yesterday. It has over 380 pages of the most amazing textiles, from Muhu Island, Estonia. It includes beautiful examples of knitting, with charts and techniques
With beautiful historical and contemporary photos
Embroidery, with details and charts
Crochet garments, laces, and trims
If I could only have one textile book, this would be it. My desert island book! I admit it is not cheap and weighing over 2kg, it will be heavy to order through the mail, but it is worth every penny. If you are looking for a last minute gift for a fibrephile who has everything, this is it. They won’t have it already because we are the first store in the world to have an English copy. Unless, of course, the fibrephile is me. Susan gave me my copy yesterday as a Christmas present. Yippee!

My attention was brought to this amazing book on Kate Davies site. You are right about this being a desert island book! I hope someday to just be able to leaf through it. Amazing. Thank you for featuring photos?

I… want the shawl on the cover so badly. So badly. I don’t know how to knit, though. Maybe I will learn to knit.
Really inspiring pictures. Want to start knitting and exploring textiles now!
