In this inspiring book, master knitter, teacher, and
widely published knitwear designer Lee Gant shares real-life stories about the
power of knitting.
As an employee of three different yarn stores, a
teacher of countless knitting classes, and a volunteer with at-risk youth, Lee
has had the opportunity to gather diverse stories. The stories she shares about
herself and fellow knitters from around the world illustrate how each stitch
and purl can comfort and calm, heal and renew. A suicidal teenager crochets
through pregnancy. A dying woman finds comfort in the company of knitters. A
woman finds the courage to face her estranged parents. A woman going blind
realizes she can still knit—and experience life. And Lee’s life, riddled with
more than just anxiety, has at last become stable and productive. This book
includes stories of women, men, and teens who have experienced profound change
and enlightenment through knitting and crochet. Download and start listening now!
