From cosy blankets and socks to stylish bags and wraps, there is something here for every knitter. Celebrating the joy and versatility of yarn, The Gentle Art of Knitting is knitting for comfort and to create comfort. It is knitting you can pick up when you have a few moments, and then put down without worrying that you will never remember where you left off, knitting that can be combined with other good things in life such as families, friends, chat, cake, tea, films and radio. It is knitting for the simple pleasure of knitting and of making something you like. From a Plaited Bread Cabled Blanket and Fabergé Egg Cosies to a String of Purls Cushion and a Chanel-style Bag, each project is accompanied by its own narrative, evoking memories of days at the beach, hours spent trawling flea markets and cosy afternoons by the fire. With stunning photography and inspirational ideas, Jane s designs are knits that you will want to keep forever.
