I checked out Iris Schreier’s Lacy Little Knits from the library yesterday and kept thinking the redheaded model looked so familiar. I just figured it out. I think she’s Amanda Swafford from America’s Next Top Model. Five minutes of Googling didn’t confirm it for sure, but made it seem pretty likely–there are acknowledgements for Asheville, NC stores in the back of Lacy Little Knits, and Amanda is from North Carolina–she’s profiled in some Asheville “local girl makes good” news stories.
Green Apples has some good pictures from the book posted in her book review.
