Come on Down to Mercury Hall! New Pattern Book Now Available!

Hey Y'all,
After the happy success of our first two pattern books-- Hill Country Weavers SHELTER Collection and the Prairie Bliss Collection-- we are delighted to introduce you to our latest book. Tada! Welcome to Musings from Mercury Hall!

The book is available in print form or as an ebook, your choice. Suzanne and Kennedy just got back from debuting the collection at VOGUE Knitting Live! in New York where it made a big splash. That's right-- not only does everyone want to live in Austin, apparently everyone wants to knit here, too.

The gorgeous photos for the book were shot by Meg Rice at Mercury Hall in South Austin-- that's an old, pretty little church that was moved to the property and converted to a dance hall and wedding venue. If you've never been there, check it out-- it's elegant simplicity at its finest, just like the patterns in Musings from Mercury Hall.

Designers of the crochet, knit, and weaving patterns include: Ana Clerc, Jennette Cross, Carol Spurlock, Elizabeth Green Mussleman, Patricia Kalthoff, Elizabeth Cobbe, Kennedy Berry, Suzanne Middlebrooks, Emily Kausalik, and Susan Frick. Check out some sneak peeks below:

I am all over knitting that luscious Blue Gene's scarf. As always, Meg Rice's photography is gorgeous. Congrats, everyone!
