Slow Knitting encourages knitters to step back, pare down and celebrate the craftsmanship of their work.
In five chapters, the tenets of slow knitting – sourcing carefully, making thoughtfully, thinking environmentally, experimenting fearlessly and exploring openly – challenge knitters of all skill levels to view their practice in a new way. Each chapter begins with an exploration of a fibre type, then moves into profiles of well-known yarn types, makers and yarn suppliers, and ends with garment patterns inspired by the featured fibre.
With contributions from knitting superstars Norah Gaughan, Bristol Ivy and many others, the book proposes an approach to knitting that is both minimalist and all-encompassing, and emphasises what makes knitting a meditation, a passion and a unique necessity.$39.99
