Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in paperback, this unique and creative book goes beyond the conventional how-to guides to get to the essence of the craft.

From Hollywood to fashion circles to knitting circles on college campuses across the country, knitting is the hippest new skill around and is practiced by millions of people.

Combining the best of two great worlds, The Knitting Goddess consists of 10 chapters, each offering a fascinating story of an ancient goddess, which is then applied to a basic knitting technique or simple pattern. Learn, for instance, about Isis, the mother goddess of Egypt, and knit a red stole that grants power to its wearer. Other stories and projects include Athene and a scarf called a smoke ring, Penelope and a warm beautiful sweater, and more. Wonderful for beginners as well as the more advanced knitter, this one-of-a-kind approach to knitting will teach readers not only how to master the craft, but will also entertain, inspire, and inform.

Synopsis:

Included with instructions and techniques for knitting are inspirational stories of ancient goddesses, teaching readers not only how to master the craft, but to entertain, inspire, and inform. Illustrations.
