This book is a little outside our usual subject matter, but it is written & self-published by two friends and features Tasmania's wonderful landscape and the knits it inspired.
“The colours, textures, patterns and history of Maria Island have inspired a sketchbook approach to eight handknitting designs. Prue Hutton’s striking artwork and diary from a four-day walk on Maria have been interpreted in unique handknits by Sally Ord.
Join Prue on her walk to discover the places that inspired her artwork and follow the knitting patterns to recreate Sally’s exquisite garments.
It’s impossible not to become immersed in the improbability, romance, tragedy, resourcefulness and wonderment of this speck in the ocean, that is Maria.”
