The Gentle Art of Knitting
Two days ago my copy of Jane Brocket's latest book, The Gentle Art of Knitting arrived. I have had the best time reading it and reveling in the lovely photos and picking out future knitting and crocheting projects from the patterns included.
As with The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking, Ms. Brocket has stripped away rules and intimidating "must-do's" to make knitting and crocheting accessible to everyone who would like to create something with yarn. She emphasizes color and texture, and has written patterns for a variety of projects to showcase those elements.
This book is written to inspire and encourage knitters of every skill level, and those who would like to learn to knit.
