Maggie's Ireland
By

Rating
This splendid collection of designer handknits features photographs shot in beautiful Northern Ireland. With more than 40 projects, there are pieces suited for every season and shape that take knitters from the beach to the ballroom. A Northern Ireland native, Maggie Jackson brings a fashion designer's approach to handknits, showing knitters how simple stitches can create lines and blocks of texture. Traditional yarns - Irish tweeds and linens - and a few exotic materials such as strips of chambray, denim, gingham, and fur are combined to create innovative designs for women, men, and children. Highlighting each design are photographs from locations around Northern Ireland, including Giant's Causeway, Mussenden Temple, the Mourne Mountains, Queen's University, the Ulster Folk Museum, and historic Slieve Donard Hotel.

Dec 05 You won't be able to resist this beautiful collection. Maggie Jackson takes you on journey around her native Ireland, showcasing over 40 knitted projects all photographed against stunning backdrops. Maggie has used a mixture of traditional yarn and other materials including ribbon and denim for knitwear you will love. Simple stitches have been utilised to create stripes and blocks of varying texture for garments that include dresses, ponchos and coats, plus homeware such as cushions and tablemats. There's no doubting where Maggie gets her inspiration: rich and vivid greens taken from the vast Irish countryside, and the deep and fresh blues of the coastline. Even if you're not a knitter you'll love the fantastic photography of breathtaking locations such as the Giant's Causeway. Simply Knitting
