Knits of Tomorrow: Toys and Accessories For Your Future Needs

by Sue Culligan

Knits of Tomorrow is an unusual collection of patterns to knit with a science fiction theme. Since I like to knit and I have always been interested in science fiction, I decided to check this book out from the library. The knit designs are a bit advanced for me, for the most part, but I enjoyed looking through the book anyway. Some of the more interesting projects are a desk tidy that looks like a rocket ship, a flying saucer paperweight, a music player cover that is designed to look like a cassette tape, a laptop cover with a Sputnik space satellite image, and many others. Many of the patterns use intarsia or fair isle knitting, or involve three-dimensional shapes. There are also some easier items as well. Even if you don’t think you have the skill level to knit these items, you may want to give it a look just because the pictures are so interesting.
