New on the Shelf: Saltwater Gifts from the Island of Newfoundland

For immediate release

August 10, 2020

Boulder Books is proud to release the much-anticipated third book in its bestselling Saltwater Knits series: Saltwater Gifts from the Island of Newfoundland: More than 25 fashion and home styles to knit.

The series, which began in 2018 as a way of saving traditional knitting patterns from dying out, has turned into an international sensation with knitters throughout North America and northern Europe. There is a resurgence of interest in Newfoundland knits due to the efforts of authors Christine LeGrow and Shirley Scott, whose books combine patterns with stories about the culture of the province.

Their latest book, Saltwater Gifts, is a romp through a year of celebration, commemoration, and giving. It includes more than 25 beautiful designs, including Tibbs Eve Vamps, Iceberg Alley Fine Gloves, Solstice Mitts, Soldiers Socks, tea cozies, dog walking gloves, and so much more.

In recognition of the need for social distancing, Boulder Books has partnered with Newfoundland knitting retailer Cast On Cast Off for a Facebook Live book launch: https://www.facebook.com/events/293665868609130/

Hosted on Facebook by Boulder, and featuring Christine and Shirley, it will take place Wednesday August 12 from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm Newfoundland time. Anybody is welcome to participate and questions are welcome. People can also ask to have books signed during the event, with Cast On Cast Off shipping orders.

The Saltwater Knits series started in 2018 with publication of the award-winning Saltwater Mittens, and was followed by Saltwater Classics in 2019.
