Knitting Memories

by Lela Nargi, Knitting Memories Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Knitting Memories books, Sometimes it is a cherished knitted item that starts a story, sometimes the quest for another skein of the perfect yarn, and sometimes the way knitting is worked into a memory. There's a reason a "yarn" might be a tale or a thread, drawing us along - as these knitters do with their stories of the knitter’s art. Raveling or unraveling, knitters such as Lily Chin, Betty Christiansen, Teva Durham, Clara Parkes, Caroline Herzog, and Lela Nargi take us into their confidence, sharing with us the whimsy, the insights, and simple pleasure that the age-old craft of knitting has brought into their lives—and now ours. Each story in this wonderful collection focuses on one of the best parts of the knitting tradition - making a gift for someone special, or receiving a gift, or cherishing a gift that has been handed down through the generations.

Hooked

by Kari Cornell, Hooked Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hooked books, Some learned to crochet at a grandmother's knee and now keep the faith. Others sought comfort in the craft during dark and troubling times. And still others found in crocheting a way of making something that perfectly expresses the artist inside. Yet others, of course, needed a vest. How people came to crocheting, what they've made of it, what memories it has added to their lives, and what moments of insight and simple pleasure it's brought them-these are the stories told in Hooked: A Crocheter's Stash of Wit and Wisdom. A tribute to the age-old art, Hooked is embellished with charming illustrations from vintage pattern booklets. Among the contributors-with anecdotes ranging from the whimsical to the philosophical-are newcomers and those well known in crocheting circles from Lily Chin, Jennifer Hansen, Karen Searle, and Gwen Blakely Kinsler to Lela Nargi, Kay Dorn, Nilda Mesa, Deborah Robson, Annie Modesitt, and Linda Permann.

Knitting For Peace

by Betty Christiansen, Knitting For Peace Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Knitting For Peace books, Easy patterns for charity knitting projects from blankets to bears! All across America, people are knitting for peace. In yarn shops and private homes, churches and synagogues, schools and even prisons, they meet on weekday evenings or weekend afternoons to knit afghans for refugees, mittens for the homeless, socks for soldiers, or preemie caps for AIDS babies. The tradition goes back as far as Martha Washington, who spearheaded knitting efforts for the soldiers of the Revolutionary War, and has seen a recent flourishing in what is nowadays called “charity knitting,” “community knitting,” or “knitting for others.” And whether it’s for world peace, community peace, or peace of mind, today’s various causes have the common goal of knitting the world into a better place one stitch at a time. Knitting for Peace is an exceptional book that celebrates the long heritage of knitting for others. It tells the stories of 28 contemporary knitting-for-peace endeavors and features patterns for easy-to-knit charity projects such as hats, socks, blankets, and bears, plus a messenger bag emblazoned with the Knitting for Peace logo. Enlivened by anecdotal sidebars and quotations from both knitters and peacemakers, this inspiring book also includes everything readers need to know to start their own knitting-for-peace groups.

Knit It Together

by Suzyn Jackson, Knit It Together Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Knit It Together books, For as long as people have knitted, they have gathered to share their craft--and each other’s company. Knitting bees brought industrious colonists together to socialize. Knitters joined forces during the World Wars to knit warm socks for soldiers. And today the bond between knitters is as strong as ever, with knitting circles springing up in neighborhood coffee shops and community centers, making their way online, and taking up social causes. This book puts the knitting circle, with all its profit and pleasures, within reach of anyone who wants to Knit It Together. A delightful, practical resource for knitters hoping to start or join a circle, or for a knitting circle looking for patterns or inspiration, the book provides how-to tips as well as wonderful stories of knitting circles past and present--and best of all, a collection of patterns designed to be completed in a group. Long-time knitter and author Suzyn Jackson includes a brief history of community knitting groups and a list of charities that accept knitted items.
