Until last year, few knitters could locate Haapsalu on a map much less pronounce the word "nupp" correctly. Nancy Bush changed all that with her book, Knitted Lace of Estonia.
Once the knitters of Haapsalu realized that the world was listening, they came together and created their own book about their knitting tradition. The English translation of that book, The Haapsalu Shawl, is now available in North America. It weighs three pounds, is the size of a MacBook, and costs the equivalent of 20 lattes. What's up?
