Greetings from Knit Cafeby Suzan Mischer
Synopses & Reviews
When former CBS vice president Suzan Mischer decided to open a knitting store on Melrose Avenue, she wanted to create a place where people could gather, slow down, and talk (as well as buy supplies). The result was Knit Cafe, a sleek yet homey crafts store where an increasing number of Hollywood denizens regularly unwind with their needles and yarn. With the publication of Greetings from Knit Café, knitters nationwide can join the famed store's ever-widening circle of devotees.
This colorful, cozy, and chic book offers 30 of Knit Cafe's most dazzling patterns for "California style" projects ranging from hiking socks to a bikini to a "red carpet" gown. It also features stories about how the celebrated store came to be, the neighborhood it's in, the daily goings-on, and the improbable mélange of actors, surfers, doctors, and directors that gather there. Even a few favorite recipes from regular customers are included.
Greetings from Knit Café is, quite simply, the best way to share the history, spirit, and patterns of this unique yarn store without having to fight the traffic.
When Weekend Knitting was first published in hardcover in 2003, a modern generation of knitters was just starting to discover this "hot new hobby." Since then, knitting has grown wildly popular and Melanie Falicks book has gone on to become a knitting classic and a huge bestseller.

Every project is presented with clear instructions and in beautiful photographs that celebrate idyllic weekend settings.
Quotes from diverse sources about knitting, creativity, and balanced living—along with favorite recipes, lists of books and movies with knitting scenes, and other extras—complete the weekend knitting experience.
