Hiraeth is a Welsh word which can be approximated in English by 'nostalgia' or 'homesickness', but its true complexity cannot be translated. It can apply to the bittersweet feeling of missing a place, a time, an era, or a person, while being grateful of its/their existence. Often meaning homesickness or grief for a home to which you cannot return, it can also describe the longing for a place to which you have never been, or which does not exist.
Hiraeth is a collection of 11 knitting patterns by Caitlin ffrench. The photographs for this work were shot in Iceland, California, Oregon, and Washington in some of her favourite places - places where she’s left parts of her heart.
This softcover book is 128 pages including both patterns and full-page colour photographs of the finished pieces and the places that inspired them. It measures 6" x 9" and includes an insert with a Ravelry download code for the PDF / e-book of each of the knitting patterns.
