I imagine many of you are familiar with Sally Melville.
She is an innovative knitting designer/writer/teacher from
Ontario, Canada. Maybe you've even been among the fortunate
people who have attended her classes and workshops.
The book Styles (ISBN 0-9646391-4-9) was published in 1998
by XRX (Knitter's Magazine).
It is mainly a book about working through your leftovers
and "stash" to create something beautiful. She
uses artistry and creativity to develop ideas and designs
from single balls that she's bought on sale...with no idea
of what it would be used for in the future.
talks about how to separate your stash and catalog it so
that you know what you have in your closets and drawers.
She teaches the color wheel and how to put colors together
for the most pleasing effect.
The chapters are entitled:
Good ol' Garter
Tweed Stitch Square
Tweed Stitch with Cables
Knitting as Warp
A total of 27 projects for men, women, and children that
will make your mouth drop open. Such wonderful use of color...that
is what inspired me most! The book ends with basic pattern
drafting. In my opinion, every knitter should have a copy
of this book in their personal library. Thanks Sally for
this wonderful resource!
