Spun Yarn 64
My Little Book of BIG Holes for Hand-Knitters, the ebook that wrote itself in my mind in 2 hrs, then took 2.25 years to reach completion, is finally available!
You might ask yourself, "Why would I want a book about Holes?
Surely there's nothing to them?"
But this type of hole is not made by binding off and casting on or by stitching, it's much neater than that! The technique for making these holes offers a window on a world of possibilities.
I fell in love with Scallop Holes years ago and found myself experimenting with a multitude of patterns. I've incorporated these holes into entire projects, as decorative edges and as useful finishing details. Our affair continues to this day!
In my new eBook, you will find:
These holes have both practical and creative uses. Need a strong, beautiful
buttonhole? Make one or many, with no pre-planning necessary. A decorative edge that can be a cast-on or a bind-off and beautifully
matched? Add into the mix the freedom to vary the size and frequency of the openings to create amazing openwork fabrics. Haven't you
always wanted to knit a Chinese Lantern?
Thank-you for your past and ongoing support. For cheering me along through the hurdles, such my broken wrist, sciatica (preventing me
from sitting to write) and various other vagaries that life dispenses!
If you'd like to gift a copy to a friend please let us know by phone or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make this happen!

My book's first review is by the inimitable
"One of the first things students learn in art class is all about positive and negative space - how what isn't present is as important to composition as what is. Here then, Lucy takes the textile artist to school with a wonderful exploration of the places knitting isn't. A Little Book of BIG Holes for Hand-Knitters is inspiring and charming and, as always when Lucy writes, the ornaments, tips and tricks for the rest of your knitting are worth the price of admission alone."
