About the Book
A fun and colourful little notebook peppered with images of my work - machine knits. I hope it will be inspirational and just lovely to carry around and use for sketches, ideas, technical notes, your needle stash, yarn stash records or just notes for those who don't even knit.
I have been knitting all my life learning to knit growing up in England before immigrating to Canada as a teen. In 1982 created Carolyn M. Barnett Designs with my hand knitting, then moved to the domestic knitting machine a couple of years later, they are a 400 year old tool in this longstanding craft. I have knit for many clients over the years of all ages and both genders, also worked with advertising and theatre. The buttons I use on my jackets I also make and are sold separately on my Etsy shop. Teaching and spreading the word on fashionable and arty machine knitting is also a passion and I conduct workshops in the knitting and button making.
