Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Coloring inside the lines, thinking inside the box, knitting the same-old scarf — those days are over. For knitters looking for something new to spark their imaginations, AlterKnits is the answer. Featuring 27 imaginative projects, 10 creativity exercises, and thought-provoking quotes from Albert Einstein, Martha Graham, and many more, AlterKnits inspires knitters to expect the unexpected, to enjoy the rewards of experimentation, and to see the possibilities of knitting with broader vision.

Some projects call for unusual materials — plastic tubing (for a bag handle) or sterling silver wire (for a necklace). Others blend different craft techniques — a pullover with sewn-on velvet cuffs, a baby blanket with painted-on polka dots. Still others apply knitting in unexpected places, such as laptop cases and bulletin boards. The creativity exercises — called "AlterExercises" — challenge knitters to try out new ideas and to ask provocative, sometimes amusing questions. Tucked into a pocket on the inside front cover is the 32-page AlterKnits notebook, the perfect place for readers to work on their AlterKnits exercises and do their own creative doodling.

With AlterKnits, our concept of what we can knit will be forever altered!

Synopsis:

Featuring 27 imaginative projects, ten creativity exercises, and thought-provoking quotes from Albert Einstein, Martha Graham, and many others, AlterKnits inspires knitters to expect the unexpected, to enjoy the rewards of experimentation, and to see the possibilities of knitting with broader vision.
