Since 1981, a shop called Northampton Wools has been the center of an ever-widening community of New England knitters seeking creative yet classic designs. Linda Daniels takes readers into the heart of this community, with a history reaching back to 19th-century singer and knitter Jenny Lind, and into the shop itself, presenting 34 original patterns and techniques that appeal to beginners and accomplished knitters alike.
"I am delighted to see the patterns enjoyed by the knitting community of this charming New England town drawn together in this book. Those who may not have had the good fortune to discover Northampton Wools in person can now knit from this wide variety of patterns, at whatever skill level they may be."—Fiona Ellis
