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 exotics 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.
