I didn't expect to love the projects so much! The book includes 10 projects that go from an extremely basic garter stitch scarf (perfect for the beginning knitter) through washcloths, a blanket and 2 hats for charity knitting, a simple cardigan (great first sweater for the new knitter), an aromatherapy tea cozy, a small evening purse, a lace scarf, a cabled jacket, and a baby layette. I ordered the book for the meditation instruction, not knitting instruction (I'm an intermediate knitter) and projects, but her instructions are wonderful - very clear and supportive, like the meditation instruction. And the projects! I often buy a book for the ONE thing I "must knit", but this book has 5 things I know I'll be making, starting with the little purse and the cabled jacket (and I'll probably do the organic baby layette at some point too).
This book was exactly what I was looking for, but it isn't for everyone. The focus is bringing meditation techniques to knitting, to make it a meditative practice for the knitter. If that idea appeals to you, you'll doubtless enjoy the book. If it doesn't, it's still a good project book for the beginning knitter, with projects that may or may not appeal to more advanced knitters.
I enjoy this book for it's different prospective on knitting. Many knitters realize at some level that knitting has a calming effect, if done with concentration. This book validates that feeling and adds additional prospective to knitting.

Not deep, or extensive, but this book served as a good reminder and some tips to slow down and be in the moment.Published on July 28, 2013 by A. Havlark
The book is interesting. The patterns are easy and useful. Instructions are given to help the novice knitter. I like the connection between knitting and being mindful.Published on June 1, 2013 by KMG 456
This book has a few useful knitting instructions and patterns but mostly about how to meditate & knit at the same time. As for me I watch TV while I knit. Just sayinPublished on May 23, 2013 by Amazon Customer
