Dolce Handknits - simple, sophisticated designs

What a thrill to find this book in my mailbox this morning! I've always admired Kim's work - her designs are so wearable, yet as the title says "sophisticated and simple". I first was introduced to Kim when she used our yarn for an Interweave Knits design many years ago.

On the cover is Chapel Hill worked in allhemp3. Love, love, love the design. It's very similar to one of our most popular designs - lacy little top.

Another favorite design is Seville. In the book this is worked in an merino yarn but the original one Kim knit was knit in allhemp3 in licorice. I saw this often worn by Kim at trade shows we attend.

All in all this is a beautiful compilation of Kim's designs and one I would highly recommend.

  1. How exciting to be on the cover! I quite like the seville - very elegant yet great as a casual piece too.
