A collection of beautiful, wearable projects with an emphasis on practical pieces for daily life.|Practical and stylish pieces for daily life! New American Knits offers garments that are casual but polished, equally appropriate whether running errands, at the office, or socializing with friends. Author Amy Christoffers takes her inspiration from the clean lines and elegant functionality of American sportswear and creates projects that have a classic nostalgic feel. In designing her fashionable modern uniform, Amy focuses on beautiful everyday sweaters, tops, and pretty accessories. Included are sections on texture and lace and pops of colourwork to add visual and knitterly interest. Projects feature traditional, seamless, and semi-seamless construction as well as detailed finishing. New American Knits has a ""country house"" feel with touches of heather grays, tweeds, slubby textures, and muted tones. The book is visually elegant with a streak of casual bohemian style, much like the projects themselves.

This book includes some very nice projects in classic styles with just a touch of lace or cabling to make them stand out. All in all a very good collection of garments to make with the Brooklyn Tweed or other good quality yarn in your stash.
