In this inspiring audiobook, master knitter, teacher, and widely published knitwear designer Lee Gant shares real-life stories about the power of knitting.
As an employee of three different yarn stores, a teacher of countless knitting classes, and a volunteer with at-risk youth, Lee has had the opportunity to gather diverse stories. The stories she shares about herself and fellow knitters from around the world illustrate how each stitch and purl can comfort and calm, heal and renew. A suicidal teenager crochets through pregnancy. A dying woman finds comfort in the company of knitters. A woman finds the courage to face her estranged parents. A woman going blind realizes she can still knit - and experience life. And Lee's life, riddled with more than just anxiety, has at last become stable and productive.
This book includes stories of women, men, and teens who have experienced profound change and enlightenment through knitting and crochet.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

All the knitting stories about child and substance abuse, sickness, and dying. Not enjoyable
I'm not sure; I haven't read the print version. But anything is better if you can knit while doing it. :)
She had a lovely voice that was soothing and emotional at the same time.
It was extremely inspiring, especially to a knitter.
"Grab your knitting needles for a great read"
I couldn't click stop on my MP3 player I was hooked. My intention was only to listen when I was out for my morning walk......just couldn't stop listening.
I thought I was the only one who knit for comfort. Glad to know I'm not alone.
"Enjoyable and inspiring"
I liked hearing the various stories of finding ways to improve situations through the quiet meditation of knitting. It was also nice to hear about the joy of sharing knitting time. The book has made me see many new sides to the beauty of having a creative craft.
