Eat & Knit, by Marianne Isager & Camillo’s Kitchen.

When we’re not talking about yarn, Anne and I often chat about food as we work – we both love to cook and share intriguing recipes. Thus, we find Marianne Isager’s new book especially enticing – let’s take a look inside Eat & Knit!

Eat & Knit is a collaboration between knitwear designer Marianne Isager and Camillo’s Kitchen, a pop-up restaurant in Tversted, Denmark.

The knitting patterns and recipes in this collection are all organized around a particular ingredient – cauliflower, beet, lemon, and so on. It’s fun to see the fruits and vegetables reflected in the knitwear!

We keep a variety of Isager yarns in stock here at the shop, though not every single one – ask us and we’ll help connect you with the yarn you’re looking for or a good substitute.

Eat & Knit is $21.95; order online for local pickup or shipping via USPS Priority Mail!
