I’m excited to be able to review another book from Marian Rae Publications
Journey is an aesthetically pleasing coffee table book featuring 6 knit designs.
Each design is captured beautifully by Nicholas Kupiak’s stunning photography.
The designs include: Climb, a modern take on the classic work sock.
Spate, a delightfully textured pair of fingerless gloves with a flip top option for those extra chilly morning’s.
Onward, a triangular shawl with a modern flare. This shawl is knit from worsted weight yarn and would be the perfect wrap to cosy up under this winter.
and Swift, a fun lacey toque with lots of texture.
I was especially taken by both garments in the book.
Antrorse, designed by Shannon, is that cosy sweater you want to curl up in with a good book, romp around the woods, or enjoy a fun day out in, Basically if you want cosy yet stylish this is the sweater for you.
Inland designed by Jane. the bulky cardigan that I could live in. It’s safe to say I’m pretty much always cold and I could be completely content to live warmly in this cardigan for the rest of my days.
I could see myself in both of these everyday with my favourite pair of boots but I am having such a hard time choosing colours and yarns.
For Antrorse I keep coming back to this palette:
The two on the Left are Quince and Co Osprey in Kumlien’s Gull and Honey. The two on the right are Cascade Cloud in Golden and Cinnamon. I could see myself wearing this one in colour and in something more neutral so its taking me some time to decide which of these four colours, if any, I want to go with it.
For Inland I really love the neutral look that will go with anything. I’m thinking a very pale grey like
Quince in Co Puffin in Iceland although I do love the orginal colour it was knit in as well. I just can’t choose.
Thank you so much to Marian Rae Publications for providing me with a copy of the book for review.
