The Mindfulness in Knitting

I was recently sent Rachael Matthew’s new book The Mindfulness in Knitting to review and what a lovely book this is! I mean to talk about this on the podcast too, but I have quite a few things to review and so while I will talk about some of the aspects of the book in a later episode, I thought it would be nice to mention the details here too.

From the Edge of the World: Foula Wool

With knitting though I feel I am always learning and I love to challenge myself. I know I am not the greatest knitter in the world.

Maybe because I managed to knit with two colours at once (that was a big deal), maybe because I ripped that shawl back ten times before I got it right. A lot of the satisfaction of the thing is how you got to the finished object, isn’t it?
