Harvard Book Store and Gather Here welcome bestselling author ALICE HOFFMAN and knitwear designer LISA HOFFMAN for a discussion of their new book, Faerie Knitting: 14 Tales of Love and Magic.
About Faerie Knitting
Created by bestselling author Alice Hoffman and master knitter Lisa Hoffman, Faerie Knitting is a magical melding of words and yarn where the ordinary is turned into the extraordinary and where imagination becomes creation.
Featuring fourteen original fairy tales and original patterns inspired by each story, Faerie Knitting is an entrancing collection of stories of love and loss, trust, and perseverance. Seamlessly woven into the plot of each tale is a magical garment or accessory inspired by the bravery and self-reliance of the tale’s heroine and brought to life through an imaginative and bespoke knit pattern.
From the Blue Heron Shawl and the Love Never Ending Cowl, to the Three Wishes Mittens and Amulet Necklace, each project is as wearable as it is magical. Lush, atmospheric photography captures the enchanted faerie domain while beautifully rendered charts and instructions are well suited for beginner and advanced knitters alike.
“A beautiful book that takes flight and transports knitting to a magical place. I was enchanted by it all.” ―Nicky Epstein
“The Hoffmans have invited us to enter a magical world where adventures are enchanting, mysteries abound, and knitting projects and dreams come true.” —Shirley Paden
“Faerie Knitting celebrates how stories and knitting can work their magic and save our lives. From the first page, I was enchanted.” —Ann Hood
