This Thing of Paper – Karie Westermann

“I give you permission to write in the margins of your knitting. Make your mark by slipping stitches and watch the colour changes flow. Use the stitches as you would use words. Use your yarn as ink.”

This Thing of Paper is a knitting book that urges you to make stuff. Karie Westermann was inspired by her lifelong fascination with books and how all her favourite volumes all fit just so in her hands (much like her favourite pair of knitting needles!). Eleven knitting patterns explore the connections between books and knitting, while the accompanying essays take you from medieval monasteries to contemporary libraries.

What does it mean to be a maker? What do handmade things mean to us? Who do we become as we read and knit? All these questions and many more are discussed in a knitting book quite unlike others.

The book comes complete with the patterns written in Karie’s signature style, lush photography shot on location, and bespoke graphic design.
