When it comes to knitting, who knows better than our nan? If you get tangled in a ball of wool, she's always the first person you call to help you sort your cross stitch from your cable.
While recruiting for her fledgling online knitwear company, Katie Mowat swiftly realised that it was mainly older women, namely grannies, who were volunteering their services, and so Grannies Inc. was born. Since 2009 they have gone from strength to strength, and from one product (beanies), they now design and produce a whole range of knitwear.
Her crack squad of 15 grannies will be contributing their 'purls' of wisdom and patterns to help the new knitting generation in this attractive book. With patterns for snoods, legwarmers, slouch socks, laptop cases and beanies, you'll be cool and cosy in no time. As the grannies say, 'May your bobbin always be full.'
