Knitted gifts are treasured, whatever the season. Designs unique to Newfoundland are made to keep loved ones warm all year long -- even during early summer when icebergs chill the air in the region.
Saltwater Mittens is the first book in the series, which is as much a social history of knitting in Newfoundland as it is a fantastic book of patterns guaranteed to keep your hands (and heart) warm.
Saltwater Classics is the second book in the series, which contains even more mittens, as well as some fantastic hats and sock (called vamps!) patterns.
The third book, Saltwater Gifts, continues in the tradition of preparing for the cool months of autumn and winter with fashionable trigger mitts and hats, as well as neat gifts like cushions and tea cozies.
Vivid photographs provide inspiration, but you are also encouraged to select your own colours -- thereby making your gifts distinctive. Like other books in this series, Saltwater Gifts includes tips, tricks, and stories. All patterns are rated by difficulty and clearly presented for today's knitters.
