Publisher Comments:

Provides an intimate look at how 27 of today's most innovative, inspiring, and groundbreaking knitters live and work

Captures the zeitgeist of the craft renaissance

KnitKnit, the highly collectible 'zine, has been featured in The New Yorker and on Style.com

All over North America and Europe, a brand-new generation has taken up knitting—and is transforming the venerable needlecraft by blurring the boundary between craft and art. In Copenhagen, Denmark, Isabel Berglund hand-knit an entire room. In New England, Dave Cole constructed an enormous "knitting machine" (he used excavators and utility poles) that knit an 800-stitch, 35-by-20-foot American flag. But the projects aren't all of a monumental scale. In Los Angeles, Bridget Marrin knits little dollhouses—complete with lawns, shrubbery, and smoke-filled chimneys, all made of yarn. Using surgical wire, Indiana-based knitter Althea Merback hand-knits sweaters smaller than a dime.

Five years ago, Sabrina Gschwandtner founded a 'zine to tackle the blurry edge between craft and fine art. Now, her book KnitKnit brings together profiles of 27 of the most talented artist-crafters knitting today. But KnitKnit does more than just document their ingenious creations. Each of the profiled knitters has contributed a project—a sweatshirt kimono, a mohair and metal belt, a pair of high-heeled boots, a geodesic-patterned cap, even a teddy bear knit from fiberglass insulation—meant to inspire you to find and follow your own creative path.

Synopsis:

Twenty-seven artists and crafters from around the world are profiled in this collection that highlights their innovative and rule-breaking approaches to knitting.
