"An enlightening, entertaining and affirming text on the spiritual depth of knitting. Finally, Skolnik and MacDaniels have put into words what I have been trying to express for so long about why knitting means so much to me."
―Melanie Falick, author of Handknit Holidays, Weekend Knitting, Kids Knitting and Knitting in America

Expert knitters and spiritual seekers, Skolnik and MacDaniels have filled their book with stories about design and wisdom to enrich our journeys, and guide us gently into Mystery.”
―Susan S. Jorgensen, spiritual director, retreat leader and coauthor of Knitting into the Mystery: A Guide to the Shawl-Knitting Ministry
