"A fascinating tale, knitting together the often disparate strands of science and religion, faith and reason, art and technology. 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
"Can make some of our knitting time not be about product or even process, but about understanding, meaning and connection. Linda Skolnik brings to The Knitting Way an enthusiasm, curiosity and honesty that we trust." Elaine Rowley, editor of XRX Books
