Knit with Love by Lisa Bogart
About the book:
The rhythm of knitting brings peace and joy to life. Knitters love to share stories, skills, and even their stashes of elegant yarn. And they love finding new outlets for their talents.
Knitting can't feed the hungry, fight crime, or stop global warming. But a hand-knit sweater warms a cold child. A cozy scarf eases a homeless night. A tiny hat comforts a new baby's head. A lovely prayer shawl wraps a worried patient in peace.
Through inspiring stories and gentle encouragement, Knit with Love reveals the many ways you can, with your own two hands, bring joy and comfort to those around you.
My review of Knit with Love:
I have been an aspiring knitter for quite some time now, but my patience, or lack thereof, has kept me from becoming the skilled knitter I long to be. After reading Knit with Love, I am wanting to try even harder. This book was so relaxing to read and reminded me how relaxing and therapeutic it can be to knit, even something simple.
I loved the story about Operation Toasty Toes. Now that is an organization that I can really get behind because I feel very strongly about having the comforts of home when far away, especially for the men and women who serve their country. And I loved that Irene was able to find a purpose after losing her husband. We all need that kind of hope. But, there are so many other stories that just really hit a soft spot in my heart as well. I think this book is going to be staying on my nightstand for a little while longer. I want to go back and have some more of the relaxation I found on the pages of this book. Even for someone who is not a knitter, this would be a relaxing and enjoyable book. I highly recommend it, especially for the chilly days of fall and winter. It is one of those snuggle up books that I adore.
