Knitting Love By Karly Richardson
For the cover I used pages I'd cut from the book to create a different look. I didn't want any of the information on the cover to show through since this is my book, but I did like the mauve color on the spine binding so I kept that peeking out.
I cut out pages and put in a sample of my knitting. In the sample I used a variety of stitch patterns, including seed stitch, stocknit, and ribbing, to showcase my love of texture in knit-work, and my love of tactile craft.
I created a fun pop-up inspired by the design I created for the laser-cutting project. It's a further expression of relationship with knitting.
I wanted my book to be focused on non-tech making crafts, so I chose macrame for my third technology to make a bookmark for my book. This furthers the overall theme of the book with soft, fiber-based handicrafts and are soft to the senses and rely on touch to fully experience.
