Secondly: While this book definitely has food for thought, most of the book is profiles of knitters, yarn companies, and patterns. There are some ideas in it for slowing down and thinking about your own knitting, but not as many as I would like to have seen. It has a lot of feeling like an advertisement, a list of people and companies who are "doing it right", but I feel that there are not a lot of suggestions and jumping-off points for the average knitter in ways to - for example - use up existing stash in mindful ways. I really would have liked to see less space dedicated to the patterns and the (quite beautiful) photos - less "white space" overall as well - and more about how I, as a knitter, can take what I have and knit more intentionally. In the celebration of paring down and celebrating craftsmanship, I feel this is more an ode to others doing it right, but not quite yet giving enough of a jumping-off point for knitters to do it on their own without *increasing* existing stash.
Four stars from me because while it's beautiful and helpful, there's also definitely room for improvement to help knitters curate their stash and become craftspeople more than mass-producers.
Just loaded it on my larger tablet (9" Samsung) and as long as you don't mind enlarging the page and reading half of it at a time, it can be read. But for smaller tablets, it's just not feasible. I imagine if you download it to a computer or laptop it will read OK. This would explain the large difference in cost between the Kindle version and the book version. I still want to get the book but will wait until I can pick one up used. .
I think that this book will most appeal to the process knitter who loves to consider the journey of her fiber...from the many miles it travels on hoof and auto before taking its journey through her fingers and then with the person who the garment finally adorns.
I look forward to following along with Hannah more regularly on her blog.
