I have a love hate relationship with knitting.  I have no problem with small projects but I would love to expand my knitting ‘repertoire’ and make something more elaborate like a sweater or a pair of socks.  Something different than the washcloths and blankets I currently knit.  I am though a little overwhelmed when I see a pattern for something that’s not “flat”, but I know that it’s time to change it up.

I did recently get to read a fabulous book full of encouragement and knitting fun titled “Knit with Love: Stories to Warm a Knitter’s Heart” by Lisa Bogart.  This was a really good book that actually acutely made me realize that lately I’ve been going through knitting withdrawal!

Not only does this book have amazing stories for those who connect with knitting, it also has some very funny stories.  By the end of the book I felt like I had just finished being in a knitting circle with my best friends!

My favorite chapter of the book was “Pick Up Stitches” which has to do with the many charities that can use people to knit for them.  From knitting for those deployed to chemo hats, there is a place for knitters to connect and help someone in need.

So whether you are knitting challenged (like me!) or are a pro and sell the items you knit, ”Knit with Love: Stories to Warm a Knitter’s Heart” by Lisa Bogart, will encourage and inspire you with and without your knitting needles in hand.

  1. I became a knitter out of boredom or necessity. Boredom because I had been in the hospital and I needed something to do or learn when I got out of the hospital and necessity because I needed something to keep me busy and to relax me. This was Eight yrs ago that my mother signed me up for lessons at a local knitting yarn store. I have been going great guns ever since. I have made items for most every member of my family and my extended family. My sister has even worn a dress that I knit to a wedding and to her daughter's baptism. It is what got me through some hard time because it is my go to for relaxation. However you knit it is yours and it is a for of creative outlet that everyone needs some form of outlet.
