'Knitlogie' is one of the only books that focuses primarily on monogramming. It is the first publication in a series of six craft books by Lucy Main Tweet. It features benefical tips on knitting for all levels of competency in order to make elegant items. The main subject of this book is several projects that are personalised through monogramming. Lucy Main Tweet had two major influences in life: extensive experience in the fashion industry and her childhood memories when she first learned to knit. Now she has combined both of her passions into 'Knitologie'. Inspired by her mother, who calls knitting 'a pastime for a lifetime', Lucy loved picking out new yarns with textures and variegated colours. Her relationship with her mother grew closer through their shared knitting experiences. This pastime for a lifetime has long united generations from grandparents to grandchildren. Lucy has translated her unique perspective into 'Knitologie', giving even the amateur knitter an immediate feeling of accomplishment.
Lucy Main Tweet was a global fashion leader for Talbots, Evan Picone, J. Crew and Bernard Chaus. As Senior Vice President at Talbots, she spearheaded overseas sourcing and production for Women's, Men's and Children's Apparel, Shoes and Accessories. She worked in New York City, Hong Kong, and Hingham, Massachusetts. Throughout her career she blended business acumen with creative sensibility. During travels to Europe and Asia, she created needlepoints in airport lounges and now has an extensive collection of pillows, framed pictures, and Christmas ornaments. She is currently at work on her second book 'The Ultimate Baby Knitting Book from Knitologie'.
