Like the "slow food" and "slow living" movements, Slow Knitting encourages knitters to step back, pare down, and celebrate the craftsmanship of their work.
Like the "slow food" and "slow living" movements, Slow Knitting encourages knitters to step back, pare down, and celebrate the craftsmanship of their work. In five chapters centered around the tenents of slow-knitting - Sourcing Carefully, Producing Thoughtfully, Thinking Environmentally, Experimenting Fearlessly, and Exploring Openly - Hannah Thiessen challenges knitters of all skill levels to view their practice in a new way. Each chapter explores fiber types; profiles yarn varieties, makers, and yarn suppliers; and offers garment patterns inspired by the featured fibers. With contributions from knitting superstars Norah Gaughan, Véronik Avery, Bristol Ivy, and many others, Slow Knitting emphasises what makes knitting a meditation, a passion, and a unique necessity.
