The long awaited release of Cirilia Rose’s book Magpies, Homebodies and Nomads: A Modern Knitter’s Guide to Discovering and Exploring Style (2014 Stewart, Tabori and Chang) finally came at the beginning of the month – and it’s a stunner.
Cirilia was the Design Assistant here at Berroco from 2008 to 2011, where she designed a few of my favorite sweaters of all time: Aidez, Americano and Jingu from #308 Berroco Vintage DK & Vintage. She styled the photoshoots for the pattern collections as well.
In her book, Cirilia brings us all along for the ride as she explains her thought process for translating inspiration to design and using handknits to cultivate personal style…or break out of a style rut. She includes tips on how to organize your wardrobe, revamp your old handknits and choose your next project wisely.
The book is beautifully shot by Jared Flood and the presentation is spectacular. This is a book to pick up and flip through again and again – every time something different will catch your eye.
