Synopsis

Like the "slow food" movement, Slow Knitting encourages knitters to step back, pare down, and celebrate the craftsmanship of their work. In five chapters centreed around the tenets of slow knitting-sourcing carefully, making 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 begins with an exploration of a fiber type, then moves into profiles of well-known yarn types, makers, and yarn suppliers, and ends with garment patterns inspired by the featured fiber. With contributions from knitting superstars Norah Gaughan, Bristol Ivy, and many others, Slow Knitting proposes an approach to knitting that is both minimalist and all-encompassing, and emphasises what makes knitting a meditation, a passion, and a unique necessity.
