Guest: Kathy talks with Sarah about one of the new titles from Cooperative Press, Stitching in the Stacks: Librarian Inspired Knits. Sarah was in school taking course in library sciences when she picked up knitting. She has been designing since 2005 and putting this book together has been great fun for her. The book contains 29 patterns that range from cardigans to shawls, accessories and even skirts.
Sarah designed the Book Woman Jacket, knit in our very own Valley Yarns Berkshire, after discovering the story of the Book Women; the original book mobiles! Sent out during the 1930’s into rural Appalachia, these women rode horses, or mules, up to 20 miles per day to bring books and literacy into the mountain communities.
