Greetings from Knit Cafe (Updated)
When former CBS vice president Suzan Mischer decided to open a knitting store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, she wanted to create a place where people could gather, slow down, and talk (as well as buy supplies). The result was Knit Cafe, a sleek yet homey neighborhood yarn store in one of the most famous neighborhoods in the world.
This fabulous shop--and its unique spirit--are celebrated in Greetings from Knit Cafe, now available in an updated paperback edition. Colorful and chic, the book offers 30 of Knit Cafe's most dazzling patterns for California-style projects ranging from hiking socks to a bikini to a red carpet gown. It also features stories about how the celebrated store came to be and how its eclectic clientele came to shape it. Even a few favorite recipes from regular customers are included. Knitters nationwide will enjoy Knit Cafe's California spirit and join its eclectic circle of devotees.
