knitting by design | a giveaway.
have y’all ever stumbled upon emma dime (aka emma robertson)? she’s one of those creative and completely adorable people that all of a sudden i start seeing everywhere, all over the internet. emma is a graphic designer, blogger and knitter from dallas, texas who just moved to oakland and has a fabulous studio there — and she’s just put out a brand new book, Knitting by Design. It’s a crafting book she wrote with Chronicle Books and it’s beautifully photographed by max wanger — so we decided to give a copy away to three lucky readers.
Knitting by Design includes 15 stylish projects, which emma presents with hand-drawn sketches, eye candy–laden mood boards, and Polaroids of the objects that inspired her — and encourages knitters to think outside of the yarn box by incorporating other materials into their wares, from a knitted vest with a leather pocket to a breezy tank with a dip-dyed finish. With page after page of stunning photography by max, this book will motivate us to look around, cull inspiration, and design our own fabulous looks.
