Back Cover Text:
When Elsebeth Lavold created a collection with all children’s designs,
she took her task very seriously. The Just Kidding title instead refers to the
playful mood, colors and photos that characterize the book. In addition to the
creative and sometimes unusual designs that are so typical of her style, she has
even included a teddy bear size lace sweater and a toy turtle.
But the focus is on attractive and wearable garments for children
up to the age of ten. Animals, sometimes in a medieval style, populate quite a
few of the pages. But don’t expect ingratiating puppies and kittens in a Lavold
collection; instead, she’ll put a rhino with a happy bird on its back on the
front of a sweater, or a hare on its hind legs, adapted from a medieval
tapestry. Unorthodox, but very decorative.
The cover design O’Kay represents a different angle than the
numerous color patterns; a colorful and striking cardigan in her new, soft
Cool Wool yarn, and amazingly easy to knit. As
usual in a Lavold collection, complexity spans from almost beginner to projects
for the experienced knitter.
Expect a plethora of both stylish and pretty childrenswear inside
the covers of The Just Kidding Collection, for
knitters to enjoy and for children to love.
