From the designer: "Virginia Lee Burton Demetrios is beloved for her brilliant books for children like Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and The Little House, but she was also the organizing force behind The Folly Cove Designers, a group of mostly women who collaborated to hand print textiles in Gloucester, Massachusetts, beginning in the 1930s until shortly after Burton's death in 1968. I have a long standing appreciation of their work, and for how those women (for the most part) fit art and craft into their lives alongside family and practical concerns of life on Cape Ann during and after the Second World War. As a designer, I often see the potential for knitting in beautiful things, and this collection is precisely that. Every pattern in this book is inspired by the work and personalities of thesewomen, and together are an homage to their legacy of design and collaboration."
