    A Knitting Life - Out into the World Do experiences in life transform us as human beings? Places where we live; conversations with people we meet; traveling to other countries; attending special events. What transforms and informs a craftsperson? A Knitting Life – Out into the World is the second book of three in which Marianne Isager reveals her knitting life through five decades. It wasn’t until the 1990s that Marianne Isager truly began exploring the world. In this book we follow Marianne on her travels to Latin America, Africa, Greenland, and Nepal. On these travels the gates open wide for an abundance of inspiration. Not just the patterns of textile, baskets and pottery, but also architecture, landscapes and all of those wonders that will fill your mind and soul when you first visit a new place and experience the traditions, the food, the people, and the history of the country creeping into the core of your body. As in the first book a number of her previous and most significant designs are presented, many of which reflected the fashion of the day. This book also contains 16 new designs with knitting instructions based on the inspiration from her travels, all of them combining craftmanship and yarn of high quality. During these years filled with traveling, Marianne’s home village, Tversted in the northern part of Denmark, remains the anchor in her life. Tversted is also the home for the yarn company Isager which is owned and operated by Marianne Isager and her daughter, Helga Isager.

    20 in stock Shipped within 1 business day

    This is for the printed KAL 2024 - On the Rocks pattern.   For Spring 2024, we will be knitting Lene Rix's On the Rocks Tee. On the Rocks Tee is an elegant t-shirt with dropped shoulders and a fine crystal pattern, gradually appearing on the body. Two different types of yarn are knitted together, one of which is more glossy than the other. A narrow folded edge, at the neck and on the sleeves, is knitted in the glossy yarn alone and creates a beautiful detail. The tee is worked top-down with the ”Contiguous” method. This means that the body and sleeves are worked together. Tips for color selection:  Use similar shades of the same color for Yarns A & B.  Too much contrast or separation across tones and the texture may be lost.    KAL Registration:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kani-kettu-spring-2024-kal-on-the-rocks-tee-tickets-878700736557?aff=oddtdtcreator Recommended Materials: (Option 1)• Yarn A:  250 (300) 300 (350) 400g Isager Trio 2  (175m/50g) and Yarn B: 100 (150) 150 (150) 200g Isager Alpaca 1 (400m/50g) - One strand of each held together.
