We’re excited to have two new books from designer Kate Davies! First, let’s take a look at Inkling.
Inkling is a colorful collection of designs for hand knitting and inkle weaving, a craft Davies picked up after an inspiring residency. She found that learning a new skill reinvigorated her creative practice, and this delightful book is the result.
All of the projects in this book are knit with Kate Davies’ own line of yarn, Milarrochy Tweed, a fingering weight wool and mohair blend. We don’t have it here at the shop, though we wish we could, but we have a great many excellent substitutes – Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, Tukuwool Fingering, Brooklyn Tweed Loft and Peerie, Kelbourne Woolens Camper, and more. We’re happy to help you come up with yarn and color substitutions!
The lace designs below caught Anne’s eye in particular – these look like such nice lightweight layering pieces, and interesting knits.
Come by the shop to browse this and other Kate Davies books – she’s a favorite of ours, so we do try to keep her books in good stock! Currently we have Yokes, West Highland Way, Milarrochy Heids, Warm Hands, Shore, and the brand new Bluestockings – keep an eye out, we’ll be featuring that on the blog soon!
Inkling is $30 – swing by the shop to get a copy, or order online for local pickup or shipping – hope to see you at the shop soon!
