Description

In Knitting Lessons, Lela Nargi takes readers on a journey through the varied landscapes of knitting, accompanied by the people who take obsessive pleasure in learning and mastering this ancient craft. Since the first of what would be a series of profound realizations gained from knitting (You mean there are only two stitches involved?), Nargi has not been able to put her needles down, and in this book she seeks to discover exactly what it is about the practice of knitting that draws people in and keeps them returning, day after day, to their yarn. The people Nargi encountered as she followed a path through interconnected circles of knitters from all across the country describe how knitting-as profoundly simple as it is profoundly not simple-encourages a more peaceful and productive existence. In Knitting Lessons, aficionados will delight in hearing the inspiring, enlightening, and sometimes just plain funny reasons why people knit, as told by knitters all across the country.show more
