Knitter's Review
January 15, 2009
Buffalo and bamboo on a pillow

We're always on the lookout for the new and unusual when we travel. So was Nancy Bush when she first ventured to Estonia in 1995, picking up several handknitted lace shawls as gifts for her mother. The more she studied those shawls, the more intrigued she became.

After a decade of research, Nancy Bush has assembled a comprehensive tribute to these shawls in her book, Knitted Lace of Estonia—which I review this week.

Bohus in Minneapolis
Fans of the Bohus knitting tradition have reason to rejoice this month, as Radiant Knits: The Bohus Tradition opens on January 23rd at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The exhibit runs through March 29th and features original Bohus couture garments. Opening weekend events include presentations by master dyer Solveig Gustafsson, Bohus Stickning designer Kerstin Olsson, and Bohus instructor Susanna Hansson.
