This charming collection of knitwear pieces features knits themed on the characters from the Green Gables series you know and love: Matthew, Marilla, Gilbert, Diana, and of course, Anne herself... The book was published in agreement with the heirs of Lucy Maud Montgomery, so the book also contains a wonderful treasure trove of photos of the author and Prince Edward Island (the setting for the Anne books), as well as quotes from the books scattered throughout. --Wooly Wonka Fibers
This book is just beautiful to look at. --Knitting Scholar
