Greetings From Knit Cafe, by Suzan Mischer
When former CBS vice president Suzan Mischer decided to open a knitting store on Melrose Avenue, she wanted to create a place where people could gather, slow down, listen to great music, and get to know each other (as well as buy supplies and knit, of course). Her vision led to Knit Cafe, a sleek yet homey yarn store where an eclectic mix of Hollywood residents regularly unwind with their yarn and needles. With the publication of Greetings from Knit Caf, knitters nationwide can take an armchair journey to this center of creativity and friendship.
This colorful, cozy, and chic book offers thirty of Knit Caf's most popular patterns for "California style" projects--from hiking socks and a hoodie to a bikini and a "red carpet" gown. It also features stories about how the celebrated store came to be, the neighborhood it's in, the daily goings-on, and the improbable mix of actors, surfers, doctors, and directors that gather there. Even a few favorite recipes from regular customers are included. Greetings from Knit Caf is, quite simply, the best way to share the story, spirit, and patterns of this unique yarn store without having to fight the traffic.
