Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Everyone knows that handmade knitted items warm the body, but only knitters understand that the craft of knitting can also heal the mind and soothe the soul. In this beautiful and uplifting book, Lee Gant tells her personal account of how knitting made a difference in her life. Read her story: You’ll laugh, and you’ll cry. And, if you’re not already a devoted knitter, I bet by the end you’ll be registered for your first lesson at your local yarn shop! What this world needs is more folks like Ms. Gant—and, of course, more knitters.” Melissa Leapman, bestselling author of Knitting the Easy Way
“I found it hard to put down, the raw emotion in her words draws you in, and you will find yourself willing her on to succeed…There are lessons for us all to learn in this book.” Betsan Corkhill, author of Knitting for Wellness
“Lee Gant gives an honest account of her past substance abuse, entwining her stories with her passion for knitting. Not only has she recovered and persevered, but she continues her journey as she teaches the art of knitting to others with similar issues. Ms. Gant’s color descriptions are delicious, enticing anyone to taste the craft of knitting…Highly recommended.” Pamela Fender, author of Beside Myself
