Robin Hansen is acknowledged as having started the groundswell of interest in North American "roots" knitting. Prior to my book, Fox & Geese & Fences, there were books on traditional Baltic, Scandinavian, and British knitting, but North American knitters were assumed to be working with obsolete techniques from simplistic printed patterns and to have no knitting traditions.

Ice Harbor Mittens

"This gorgeous book with its gentle pastel artwork and Maine colloqualisms, is a treat for both adults and children."
