A Knitter’s Home Companion offers cheerful and inspiring stories on knitting and knitters, and leads you through a path to help you discover your own. The journey includes many scenic routes: Michelle’s sincere style of storytelling, her pretty color illustrations, as well as simple and beautiful patterns and even recipes like Mitten Ladies Slow Cookers Soup.
Evolving through handwork, and specifically knitting, is what this book about. It goes beyond pearls of wisdom and delights and surprises with many extra treasures. Michelle Edwards, the voice of Lion Brand Yarn’s monthly e-newsletter, knows knitting, but more importantly, she knows knitters. The inspiring stories in this book will appeal to readers interested in not only stitches, yarn, and patterns, but also in the lessons that can be learned from their craft. “Let this book keep you company when you need another knitter’s voice beside you,” Edwards writes in her introduction.
Following are some of the pretty visuals and knitting projects in the book:
