Seasonal Slow Knitting

Seasonal Slow Knitting
$29.99
"Thiessen's new book is all about promoting creativity at a slower pace, offering advice on finding the time and space to knit in a restful, calming way." --The Knitter

This guide to knitting, making, and living a slow and thoughtful lifestyle all year long is author Hannah Thiessen's follow-up to Slow Knitting, which introduced crafters to a process of more mindful making through five basic tenets: source carefully, make thoughtfully, think seasonally, experiment fearlessly, and explore openly.

Now, in SeasonalSlow Knitting, she offers a seasonal approach that encourages knitters to delve deeper into those concepts, applying them to everyday making through a series of essays, projects, and patterns that explore the life of a knitter throughout the year.

Organized similarly to a seasonal planting guide or farmer's almanac, each chapter and section is designed to identify and encourage small ways that knitters may begin to employ noticeable change: organizing your yarn stash, carving out time for knitting, and starting on that baby blanket in a timely manner.

Thiessen writes in her introduction, "This book is as much about the philosophy behind why we knit and love to create, as it is about following a pattern or working on project." The ideas explored here add up to a fuller, more mindful year, all through the joyful experience that is knitting. They seem more essential than ever in a world that moves too quickly, seems to call us to pick up a smartphone or other gadget, and seems fraught in ways we did not expect five or ten years ago. Today, knitting and slow knitting seem more important than ever before.
