Review:

"Zen and the Art of Knitting is crafted like a handmade sweater, with great texture and beauty and love. Bernadette Murphy artfully knits together creativity, spirituality, and daily life, letting us see the rich and wondrous fabric that connects all of it, all of us, ?in a piece.? This is a book readers will want to wrap themselves up in again and again for comfort, for inspiration, for affirmation of the healing, centering, power of the art.? ?Gayle Brandeis, author of Fruitflesh: Seeds of Inspiration for Women Who Write
