When J. Lo wears knit leg warmers in her Flashdance MTV special, it's official: knitting has gone Hollywood. But West Coast knitting diva Suss Cousins already knew that. In this highly anticipated sequel to "Hollywood Knits, Cousins presents 30 chic, modern designs, along with just a little insider gossip about the stars who have made, bought, or worn them. In addition to Lopez's leg warmers, readers can create the ribbed cap donned by the sailors in the film "Master and Commander; a funky purse with a big flower patch (trhs Carrie Bradshaw); even his-and-her sweaters for hipster pooches.
A passionate advocate of not only knitting but the good life in general, Cousins aims to share the love. She tells readers how to throw the best theme-based knitting parties, start a knitting circle, even fund-raise through knitting. To enhance the knitting experience, she includes some of the Swedish recipes she grew up with and now serves in her L.A. studio and at home. She describes her techniques for decorating a room with yarn, and even lists her preferred mix of CDs to knit by. Every page reflects her personal brand of joie de vivre.
