At Open Road Media, we are delighted to partner with STC Craft | Melanie Falick Books to make their beautiful knitting titles available as ebooks. Earlier this month, we published six new knitting ebooks, including Knitting for Baby, Knits Men Want, Knitted Socks East and West, Knit 2 Together, Viva Poncho, and Knitting 24/7. Melanie Falick recently got together with her Knitting for Baby coauthor, Kristin Nicholas, to discuss their book—and Open Road’s video team was along for the ride.
Nicholas welcomed everyone at her Massachusetts farm to shoot this video (below), in which she and Falick talk about their inspirations. Nicholas is a decorative artist and celebrated knitwear designer.
