over twenty patterns, each one prettier than the next.
 i made the first sweater in this group, the pinkish clay colored one. the wool was 
tern from quince & company. carrie's patterns are so well written, truly a joy.

there is a choice of print book or ebook or ebook + print book package
this is a book that would be a welcome addition to any knitters library.

p.s. did you know carrie's daughter immie, shown in the last photo, darling wee girl, is about 
to become a big sister?!

p.p.s. congratulations carrie, this is an amazing achievement, really a thing of
 beauty and something to treasure. i can't wait for my book!

  1. What beautiful knits and such stunning photos!

  2. Agree, they are gorgeous patterns! I love every single one of them and it goes without saying that you did a beautiful job on the top sweater Lori x

  3. Good choice! Those designs are gorgeous. I've knitted the top one but gave it long sleeves and used Holst super soft yarn, it's my favourite cool weather sweater and looks lovely over a dress.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing, there are some really stunning pieces there that I might need to knit straight away!

  5. thank you for sharing it here Lori, i'm in love with those patterns <3

  6. i so agree dear Lori, Carrie is well deserving, such a talented designer !!
    i can't wait to order my book hope you are well. x

  7. What a beautiful collection! I love the Imogen stitch. I have to admit my Imogen cowl is one of my favorite things to wear, but wasn't my favorite to knit, but I love love love they way it looks when it is complete! So worth it!

  8. that first one is a dream!
    wishing i could knit like that....
    love, LOVE your tiny cactus
    and the colorful baret made me ;^))
    i used to knit them for my kids
    when they were little
    from colorful cotton

    wish you a fine, FINE trip!!!!

  9. Oh Heavens! How wonderful: both on the baby front and the divine patterns. Some of these I have already seen but I am so very tempted to purchase them all together. Perhaps buying this book would help me reduce my large yarn stash...

  10. my copy is ordered!!!! can't wait to start knitting!

  11. I agree with you, this is one of the most beautiful collections I've ever seen. Of course, your sample is gorgeous (I KNEW it would be, you worried for nothing dear Lori!). I was lucky enough to knit 2 for Carrie (the blue Sibella, and the beige Beatrice, both pictured here). I want every single piece, exactly the way that Carrie styled them (oh all those Liberty tunics!) What a talented lady she is!!! I'm so excited that she's having another wee one.
