Do experiences in life transform us as human beings? Places where we live; conversations with people we meet; traveling to other countries; attending special events. What transforms and informs a craftsperson?

A Knitting Life – Out into the World is the second book of three in which Marianne Isager reveals her knitting life through five decades.

It wasn’t until the 1990s that Marianne Isager truly began exploring the world. In this book they follow Marianne on her travels to Latin America, Africa, Greenland, and Nepal. On these travels the gates open wide for an abundance of inspira-tion. Not just the patterns of textile, baskets and pottery, but also architecture, landscapes and all of those wonders that will fill your mind and soul when you first visit a new place and ex-perience the traditions, the food, the people, and the history of the country creeping into the core of your body. As in the first book a number of her previous and most significant designs are presented, many of which reflected the fashion of the day. This book also contains 16 new designs with knitting instructions based on the inspiration from her travels, all of them combining craftmanship and yarn of high quality.

During these years filled with traveling, Marianne’s home village, Tversted in the northern part of Denmark, remains the anchor in her life. Tversted is also the home for the yarn company Isager which is owned and operated by Marianne Isager and her daughter, Helga Isager.
