About Saltwater Mittens:
"Woollen mittens have long been a Newfoundlander’s best friend. The warmer the better. In a quirky climate of freeze, thaw, blow, and drizzle, good mittens made all tasks easier—to split birch, hammer a nail, gut a fish, draw and haul water, hang clothes on a line, shoot a seabird, or snare a rabbit. Social life, too, always required the finest mittens and gloves. This continues today."
Authors Christine LeGrow and Shirley Scott have delighted lovers of traditional wool with their latest book about colorwork mittens.
About Saltwater Socks:
This eagerly awaited volume focuses on family socks that promise to amaze, from delicate Nighty Night Sleep Socks to sturdy Bell Island Tickle Vamps and iconic Puffin and Whale play socks for youngsters. Coordinating hats, gloves and fingerless mittens rooted in traditional design complete this exploration of contemporary Atlantic outdoor style. Detailed instructions and lavish photographs will appeal to readers and knitters of all ages and abilities.
With Saltwater Socks, fourth in the Saltwater Knitsseries, readers will find designs inspired by Newfoundland's traditional knitting patterns. This book highlights the island's culture through innovative photography, anecdotes, and stories.
Vogue Knitting described the Saltwater series as "elegant," while noting the outstanding quality and creativity of the books.
