One in eight women, 12 % of women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. In 2010 there were more than 25 million breast cancer survivors in the US. About 70-80% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. It is time to knit pink. Knit Pink is a book of 25 patterns to knit for comfort, gratitude and charity, thanks to Lorna Miser. You are sure to find a color pink that suits your taste. Or change the color and see how it can make a difference. The skill levels include beginner, easy and intermediate. Large, clear photographs are included from several angles. The "Helpful Information" section at the back of the book includes knitting techniques, sewing zippers into knitting, using fused lining, abbreviations and more. There are patterns for scarves, hats, pillows, a tote, socks, slippers and a zippered purse.
An easy "Wrapped in Warmth Blanket" is knit from a center panel and then using mitered corners, fans out from there. Who wouldn't want to cozy up in this throw? "Big Carry-all Tote" has a fused lining (no sewing) with suede handles and bottoms. This beginner 80/20 cotton/wool project will keep its shape no matter what you are carrying. On the cover is "Soft Embrace Shawlette" an intermediate project worked in 100% bamboo yarn. The yarn has sheen, drape and knit with lace edges and shaping. Knitting this using any color is sure to be a hit.
Lorna Miser was inspired to become a knitter by both a mother and grandmother who knit beautiful things. By the late 1980s, Lorna was raising sheep, llamas, and rabbits and making yarn from their fiber. Next she created a popular yarn company, Lorna's Laces, which she sold in 2003. Since then she's spent her time designing, teaching, and writing. Lorna's designs can be found in many magazines, on websites, and through dozens of yarn companies.Visit Lorna's website
