Arctic Lace Knitting Projects and Stories
by Donna Druchunas
Donna has included a well versed, concise history of the Alaskan Native Oomingmak knitters, their people, cultures, and knitting designs, as well as a history of the musk ox and its domestication in Alaska and the US mainland. Each of Donna's designs include images illustrating the source for her inspirations. Every detail for knitting these lace designs is included and explained fully accompanied with illustrations so even beginning lace knitters can experience the joy of working with qiviut! Chapters "Lace Knitting Workshop" and "Designing your own Projects" are included to guide you throughout your journey of charted lace knitting and designing which makes this an excellent workbook for beginning lace chart knitters. There's something for everyone here!
"A must-have for all knitters who want to better understand
lace—and the diverse knitting world!"
"The wealth of patterns included in the book make it equally
valuable to the beginner, intermediate, or advanced lace knitter."
"Donna is at it again, doing what she does best—giving us a
hands-on, in-depth look at historical knitting and modernizing it for the
knitter who needs to know."
"I have longed to see the history and story of this unusual
co-operative written down. I think that this book Arctic Lace will help to
introduce more people to a truly luxurious fiber, some of Alaska’s peoples, and
to these remnants of the last Ice Age, the musk ox. I am pleased to see that
Donna has helped to capture the spirit of the co-op and is honoring the
resilient knitting members of the co-op."
