Reviews

“Before the craze for hand-dyed yarn became a big business, there was Koigu, the Ontario-based company founded by the Landra family. Hand-painted in gorgeous, saturated colors, Koigu yarns were especially coveted during the early years of the current knitting renaissance, and one of the early knitalongs—before the days of Ravelry—was Maie Landra's Charlotte's Web shawl (which appears in this book). The shawls vary in size and complexity, from simple shawlettes to extravagantly detailed showpieces, and each design showcases the stunning colors that define the Koigu brand. The coauthors also celebrate their Estonian roots, incorporating elements of traditional Estonian lace into some of the shawls. VERDICT Many knitters enjoy hand-painted yarns, but they can be difficult to work with because the riot of color can take away from the knitting. This collection showcases the beauty of both hand-painted yarn and knitted lace.” —Library Journal
