Knitologie by Lucy Main Tweet


Pin It Fancy

One of the only books focused on monogramming and the first in a series of craft books by former Talbots senior executive Lucy Main Tweet, Knitologie features elegant items made personal through monogramming.

Lucy had two major influences in life: extensive experience in the fashion industry and her childhood memories when she first learned to knit. Now she has combined both of her passions into Knitologie. Inspired by her mother, who calls knitting a "pastime for a life time from age eight to eighty," Lucy loved picking out new yarns with textures and variegated colors. Her relationship with her mother grew closer through their shared knitting experiences. This pastime for a life time has long united generations from grandparents to grandchildren.

Lucy has seen it all -- from yarn mills in Italy and China to the finest knitwear factories around the world. She has worked with factories where automated knitting replicates the human hand and has closely observed professional hand knitters whose work is exceptional. Lucy has translated her unique perspective into Knitologie, giving even the beginning knitter an immediate feeling of accomplishment.
