  • You are a master sales person. I’ve already heard about the book and vaguely thought it might be interesting. Now I’m convinced that I’d love to read it.

  • I’ve been waiting for this one. Yay!

  • I’m reading this book right now and HIGHLY recommend it.

  • the pattern won’t download from my cart…can you send it to my email?

    • You have to put in all your info, as if making a purchase. At the very end of that process you will then be able to download the pattern.

  • This is so zen, the means, the method of knitting. How it brings me through to that meditative, contemplative state where the mind can refocus, rejuvinate.Often, now, while knitting I become aware of my hands and how they function together to make and move the stitches. My eyes focus on the points of the needles and how they move to the rhythm created by my hands, a rhythm generated from the whichever pattern I have chosen to use. It all works together to bring me to a place of clarity, of focus. There are then the moments when I think “this is reality”.

  • Where can I get the pattern for the colourwash scarf?

  • Knitting is so therapeutic. I haven’t read this book, but I am sure I would like it. Knitting has been a Lifeline for me for many years but occasionally I do find myself pushing to accomplish more. Generally, this time of year as I work on my Christmas list. This is a good reminder to enjoy the process!

    • After reading about the book I am convinced and I am as you..
      Knitting has always been my therapeutic calm.

  • This book looks fabulous! And thanks so much to you and the publisher for sharing that lovely pattern. <3

  • Knitting has saved my life more than once and I don’t know what I would do with out it

  • Sometimes I bitterly resent the arthritis that keeps me from knitting all the ideas l have in my mind. But being restricted to only a few rows at a sitting does leave me time to concentrate on each stitch — how the wool reacts, the colors blend or contrast, and many other small joys.

  • Amazon site not working. Trying to order hard copy

    • Hi Ruth, I just re-checked the link. The listing still says “preorder” because the official publication date is tomorrow, October 10. I believe they will ship it tomorrow if you preorder today. The book is already available in some yarn shops from what I’ve heard. Good luck! It’s worthy.
