Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines: Patterns, Stories, Pictures, True Confessions, Tricky Bits, Whole New Worlds and Familiar Ones, Too by Kay Gardiner, Ann Meador Shayne

Dear Fellow Knitter,

Welcome! Come on in. Have a seat—we’ve been waiting for you.

Ever since our first book, Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Curious Knitters’ Guide, we’ve been exploring techniques and ideas that we once thought were the sort of thing that only brilliant knitters could do.

Our conclusion: We are all brilliant knitters!

None of this is rocket science! If you can knit a garter stitch scarf, you’ve figured out the hard part. Now it’s time for the fun to start. You hold in your hands the result of our odyssey. It’s a new collection of 30 delicious projects that we hope will take you on your own knitting adventures.

Decorating Yourself: A collection of beautiful things to make for your most demanding (and forgiving) client.

The Fairest Isle of All: A simple, quick introduction to a sort of knitting you may not have considered, with surprising, modern projects.

Covering the Small Human: Pint-sized knits, including baby hats, dreamy dresses, and a cool pullover for the ultimate challenge: the Older Child.

Occasional Knitting: Projects for the special occasions in life—holidays, housewarmings, picnics.

The Sophisticated Kitchen: New uses for one of our favorite yarns: kitchen cotton.

We have filled this book with luscious photographs, stories, tips, rules, and hints. You’ll read how we arrived at these projects and the discoveries we have made along the way, and you will discover shocking things about us.

At all times, we have kept in mind Mason-Dixon Knitting Rule Number 1 : Knitting is spoze to be fun. Fasten your seatbelt—it’s going to be a fabulous ride!

Love,
Kay and Ann

About the Author

KAY GARDINER and ANN SHAYNE met on an online knitting message board years ago, and their correspondence has grown into a community of more than 150,000 knitters who regularly log on to www.masondixonknitting.com.

KAY GARDINER learned to knit as a child, but put aside her needles for twenty years to obtain a law degree from Columbia, become an Assistant United States Attorney in Manhattan, and start a family. Lucky for knitters everywhere, she returned to knitting with a vengeance.

After a stint in the New York publishing world, ANN SHAYNE returned to her hometown of Nashville to edit BookPage. She has since chosen to devote her time to her family, to writing—and to knitting.

Honestly, I liked the first book better. The projects in the first book just seemed so much more practical and useful. While the projects in this book are very lovely, most of them I simply wouldn't use.

The book is very well done. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, always a plus with a knitting book. The authors' sense of humor is still wonderful. If you're a knitter or know a knitter, I do recomend this book. It very well might be woth it just for the sugestion of letting your dog clean the floor.
