Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting by Lorna Miser, is a charming book that it's almost an autobiographical knitting project book. Lorna invites us to join her on her self-discovery trip. When she was a little girl her desire to knit was born while looking over her grandmother's shoulder and watching her while she knit. She believes that her knitting skills are a gift from God and how she meets invaluable connections she's made with people on her knitting journey. With these new friends she shares her stories and listens to theirs. Each project in the book in some way represents a person that she has become friends with and has encouraged her along the way. Of course, her grandmother was her first knitting instructor. Her grandmother prided herself in knitting amazing lace doilies on very thin needles. Although her grandmother was a very shy person she would take her finished doilies two different appointments and events to show others. Most people would be in awe of her talent and she would sell or take orders for her gorgeous doilies. The first project in this book is of grandmother's lace shawl.

Lorna's mother was a very frugal knitter and a seamstress. She never had a stash of materials or yarns laying around their house. She only bought yarn and material when she knew what she was going to create and when she was finished with the project she would create something from scrapped of fibers and never cast them aside as worthless. For some reason, I was very touched by this due to the fact, like Lorna I have so many skeins of yarn that I am sure I will never use. During this recessionary time we should all take a lesson from Lorna's mother.

This book has lovely stories about friends and faith, and knitting projects that remind the author of those friends and events in her life. The photographs are lovely - you will want to make every project in the book! Directions are clear, and include knitting experience level.
