About the Author:

Hunter Hammersen didn't really like knitting the first time she tried it. She didn't much care for it the second time either. It wasn't till the third time, and the discovery of knitted socks, that she was properly smitten. Once she realized she could make up her own patterns, her fate was sealed. She's been busy designing ever since.

Review:

Hunter Hammersen has done it again. In this, the third volume of The Knitter's Curiosity Cabinet, she translates vintage marine illustrations into a beautiful collection of socks and accessories. Less eclectic and more refined than objects in a standard curiosity cabinet, these fresh and inventive designs beg to be put on display --Anne Budd: editor, author, designer

Hunter Hammersen's Knitter's Curiosity Cabinet Volume III is a knitterly, esthetic, and sensual delight on every level. I found myself reveling in her history of curiosity cabinets and their collectors and the fascinating and very beautiful vintage prints of marine life. And then, there is the knitting! There are 18 gorgeous pieces, all inspired by prints of sea creatures and plants, each as interesting and varied as the fantastical prints themselves. One could do some serious deep-sea diving here. And not come up for a very long time! --Sivia Harding: designer, teacher

Fling open the doors of this collection and fidn yourself pulled into its elegant, finely drawn details. You'll feel the same fascination looking at Hunter's stitch patterns as examining the fine hairs on a marine plant or discovering the ever-deepeing detail of a tidepool. Hunter Hammerseen' brings us both a precise historical exploration and surprising, delightful knitting inspiration perfect for modern knitters. A bravura third act. --Jala Spiro: Creator of the Knitcircus podcast, magazine, and yarn lines
