Stitching the Big Apple, Part Two

By February 14, 2013

Follow me on:

Yesterday I shared with you one of the recently published books about knitting icons from New York City (see below if you missed it!), and today I've got another one.

knit new yorkKnit New York by Emma King. Collins & Brown.

This one is Knit New York by Emma King, and it has caused me to way overuse the word cute. This little book has 10 patterns for knitting the city including a big apple, the Staten Island Ferry and the Broadway sign, among others. There are some overlaps between the two books -- hot dogs and taxis, the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building -- but they're approached different ways and look different in each book, so that's fun.

Either of these would make a cute gift for someone from New York, or someone who loves New York, or used to live there but doesn't any more. I think they're also fun just on the level of inspiring us to think about our travels as fodder for knitting projects no matter where we go.

Have you even knit a souvenir of your travels? I'd love to hear about it!
