There is a timeless beauty in the simple things of life. The Gentle Art of Knitting captures that everyday loveliness with 40 patterns for practical, easy-to-knit projects made with gorgeous fibers in colors that reflect nature's bounty. Notes and photographs document the sources of inspiration, from a flower to a favorite wine to a treasured book. Here is an unhurried celebration of the stitch, a joyful affirmation of the process of knitting that emphasizes the meditative as well as the creative.
