The Gentle Art of Knitting: 40 Projects Inspired by Everyday Beauty

by

A real return to the timeless, unchanging qualities of knitting - knitting to clothe, protect, wrap, comfort, enhance and insulate for all seasons. The aim here is show off the beauty of the stitch, the real joy and intimacy of knitting, and to emphasise that the slow, meditative, unhurried creative process counts just as much as the end product. Jane offers 40 patterns for knitting simple, honest, projects that are practical, easy to knit, easy to wear and use, and made with beautiful fibres in gorgeous colours inspired by nature's own comforts. Notes and photographs illustrate the author's diverse sources of inspiration for each project, whether it is a beautiful flower in her garden, a favourite wine or a treasured book. From a Plaited Bread Cabled Blanket and Faberge Egg Cosies to a String of Purls Cushion and a Chanel-style bag, Jane's designs are knits that you will want to stay around. This inspirational and instructive book - with knits for you, your home, your life - will be a true pleasure to explore. Hide synopsis
