Like the “slow food” movement, Slow Knitting encourages knitters to step back, pare down, and celebrate the craftsmanship of their work. In five chapters centered around the tenets of slow knit­ting—sourcing carefully, making thoughtfully, thinking environmentally, experimenting fearlessly, and exploring openly—Hannah Thiessen challenges knitters of all skill levels to view their practice in a new way.

Hannah Thiessen is a freelance creative and social media marketing consultant with a specialty in yarn and knitting-related business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pretty book I read a few reviews before buying this book and my assumption was that it taught you how to knit... nope. It does have some beautiful patterns that I would love to try, but I guess I need to learn HOW to knit first. It does also focus on non-mass produced wool which is half of the reason why to enjoy slow knitting. Excited to one day try one of these item, but now I am off to go find a knitting class first...
