A collection of 40 knitted and felted flower patterns that rival the beauty of true botanicals
FOR MY GRANDMOTHER, EMILY HAMMOND BELLOWS, 1903–2003, THE GARDENER WHO WENT BEFORE ME
AND FOR MY SON, SAMUEL “SOMA” HAMMOND AKKERMAN, THE GARDENER WHO FOLLOWS ME
"This book is an homage to, and an exploration of, what I find in the woods I walk through and in the garden where I work in the morning. If I were a nineteenth-century woman, perhaps I would use a small pocket sketchbook and a pencil or watercolors to capture the flowers that inspire me. But my medium is silk, merino, mohair, lace-, and worsted-weight yarn. My instruments are knitting needles. With these tools, I’ve tried to re-create a little of the botanical beauty I see every day and share it with you."
