Overview

Now available in paperback, this unique and creative book goes beyond the conventional how-to guides to get to the essence of the craft.

From Hollywood to fashion circles to knitting circles on college campuses across the country, knitting is the hippest new skill around and is practiced by millions of people.

Combining the best of two great worlds, The Knitting Goddess consists of 10 chapters, each offering a fascinating story of an ancient goddess, which is then applied to a basic knitting technique or simple pattern. Learn, for instance, about Isis, the mother goddess of Egypt, and knit a red stole that grants power to its wearer. Other stories and projects include Athene and a scarf called a smoke ring, Penelope and a warm beautiful sweater, and more. Wonderful for beginners as well as the more advanced knitter, this one-of-a-kind approach to knitting will teach readers not only how to master the craft, but will also entertain, inspire, and inform.

    A new twist on knitting books

    Some people read cookbooks even when they're not planning a menu. This book is for knitters who read pattern books even when they're not planning a project... the essays and easy-to-read patterns are hugely entertaining, though I will admit I have not yet made a project out of this book! The only thing I miss is more concrete description of the yarns in the pattern--the yarns listed are far too expensive for me to purchase and I had to go online to find descriptions of weight and fiber.

    Engaging!

    I picked this up and couldn't put it down. This book has a way of drawing you in. Interesting stories about knitting goddesses with applications for everyday knitting--A very inspiring book.

    A fun read AND some lovely knits, too

    Each chapter features a mythical goddess or biblical figure with entertaining stories and how their legends fit into our own lives and are connected to the fiber arts. The projects are useful; a 'smoke ring' scarf, a stole, a turtleneck pullover in fuzzy yarn that flatters nearly everyone that puts it on. Plenty of room to adapt these models to your own ideas. What is missing is colored photos, but you can visit the author's website to see some pictures of knitted-up models.
