Read an Excerpt
Pull up a chair, drape an afghan over your legs, and enter the world of The Knitter's Gift. It is a realm in which a pair of needles and a single strand of yarn ties the generations together, a place where the wounds of the human condition are salved, a source of warmth on days when our souls shiver, and a moment to remind ourselves of the importance of the small things in life.-from the author's Introduction
