Slow Knitting is beautiful enough to leave out on your coffee table to pick up, whether you have ten minutes to read a few pages or a few hours to get started on your new sweater. It has everything a good knitting book should: dreamy photography, detailed yarn profiles, thoughts on building a cohesive wardrobe using slow fashion, and terrific patterns.

— Megan

Description


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 knit-ting--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. Each chapter contains explorations of fiber types; profiles of well-known yarn types, makers, and yarn suppliers; and garment patterns inspired by the featured fibers. With contributions from knitting superstars Norah Gaughan, Bristol Ivy, and many others, Slow Knitting proposes an approach to knitting that is both minimalist and all-encompassing, and emphasizes what makes knitting a meditation, a passion, and a unique necessity.

About the Author


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

She has dabbled in various textile-related crafts from quilting and garment-making, to spinning her own yarns, knitting, and weaving. She lives in Nashville, TN.
