From New York Times bestselling author Alice Hoffman and master knitter Lisa Hoffman comes Faerie Knitting, a magical melding of words and yarn where the ordinary is turned into the extraordinary and where imagination becomes creation. The magic of storytelling and the magic of knitting—woven together in 14 original patterns inspired by each story. “How fairy tales are told and remembered has a great deal in common with knitting traditions. It is no mistake that we describe storytelling as knitting a tale, or weaving a story, or spinning a yarn.”—Alice Hoffman, from the Introduction of Faerie Knitting Featuring fourteen original fairy tales, Faerie Knitting is an entrancing collection of stories of love and loss, trust and perseverance. Seamlessly woven into the plot of each tale is a magical garment or accessory inspired by the bravery and self-reliance of the tale’s heroine and brought to life through an imaginative and bespoke knit pattern. From the Blue Heron Shawl and the Love Never Ending Cowl, to the Three Wishes Mittens and Amulet Necklace, each project is as wearable as it is magical. Lush, atmospheric photography captures the enchanted faerie domain while beautifully rendered charts and instructions are well suited for beginner and advanced knitters alike. Presented in an elegant linen case with foil accents that evoke the fairy tale tradition, Faerie Knitting is a rare gift for creators—and lovers—of magic.

When Aneira awakens to find she has been sprited away into the night by none other than the dread witch Baba Yaga, she is faced with a choice: help Baba Yaga find her sisters' magical skins and Aneira can go home to her family or refuse to help and lose her mother and sisters forever. The task is simple. She just has to steal the Lord of Winter’s heart by lulling him to sleep with the Harp of the Seven Winds. Once she has it, all Aneira has to do is lock it in a magic jar Baba Yaga gives her. After that, she’s free to go home. The only way to obtain the harp, however, is to succeed at the three tasks set forth by the winds themselves—winds that are bent on protecting the harp from mortal hands at all costs. But stealing the Lord of Winter’s heart turns out to be more complicated than Aneira realized, and she must decide whether returning to her family is worth the price of the world losing Winter forever.

The faerie seeker is invited to follow the sparkling pathway to Elf Land through the pages of Faeriecraft. The aim of this book is to reverse a trend that the magical and spiritual pathway of Faeriecraft has traditionally been kept a mysterious and elusive secret. The authors passionately believe that the faeries are for everyone who seeks them. This inspirational version of Faeriecraft is shaped from the authors own experiences and concepts, which have been impressed upon her by the faeries themselves. Faeriecraft takes the fey seeker on a step-by-step guide on how to practice this craft, which is the creative melding of the faerie faith and natural witchcraft. Once faerie seekers have followed the exercises and insights throughout this book, they can emerge inspired to work with the faeries and have the knowledge and confidence to call themselves a faerie priest or priestess.
