About this title

Synopsis:

The idea behind this book is to look at the practical and therapeutic nature of knitting by providing simple patterns that beginner knitters can follow and also to suggest some ideas for setting up a knitting group and making larger projects together. The patterns are all based on a simple square shape. This means that the part you are currently working on can be transported with you wherever you go - on the train, bus, waiting room or even the hairdresser! Many knitters make squares into blankets, so this is nothing new, but how the colours and patterns are joined together makes a beautiful end result by following suggestions in this book. You can change the colours to make the project your own. To knit your way through a life crisis or recovery from an operation is so beneficial putting your thoughts into the craft, rather than dwelling on a problem. There are also many charities who welcome blankets and a short list is mentioned within this book, but there are many more.

About the Author:

I have been knitting for many years and have a firm belief that anyone can engage with knitting, even if they need a little help from those more experienced. Over the years I have set up knitting groups and encouraged people to learn to knit and eventually to try more complex patterns. Living with my husband and dog in Portsmouth, I am grateful that they have become very tolerant about my stash of wool and occasionally share in my enthusiasm of a finished product. It's nothing new for me to be seen knitting in all sorts of situations - in fact I think they have come to expect it now! My past fear that the skill of knitting will die out has, in recent years, been replaced with a delight in observing how the next generation are engaging with this art. I have taught my daughter to knit and my son to hold a skein while I wind up the wool - even my husband has undertaken the latter task!
