Through inspiring stories and gentle encouragement, Knit with Love reveals the many ways you can bring joy and comfort to those around you.

Publisher's Description

Knitting blesses the knitter in so many ways. It affords quiet time, the satisfaction that comes with a challenge met and a project finished, and a creative passion to share with other knitters. As knitting and the fiber arts enjoy a renaissance in popular culture, more and more women are discovering these personal benefits. But knitting also offers knitters a way to bless those around them with handmade gifts that come straight from the heart.

With inspiring stories, Knit with Love encourages and motivates knitters to see their own potential to bring joy and comfort to themselves and those around them. Whether someone has just picked up knitting needles for the first time or is a lifelong knitter, she will discover new ways to share her beautiful creations with others--and the peace that the rhythm of knitting brings to her own life.

"So many lovely people all doing a wide variety of things to make the world a better place (p. 133). This quotation by Susan Mock, one of the people described by Lisa Bogart, summarizes the message of Bogart's new book, Knit with Love. This buffet of knitting information provides a little of everything about knitting: devotions, a history of knitting in the United States, the health benefits of knitting, and stories of numerous people who knit "to make the world a better place." It also offers some knitting tips, a simple project or two, advice on starting a knitting group, and Bogart's favorite websites and books.

The idea of knitting to make the world a better place may seem exaggerated until you read about how knitters have helped our soldiers in wars since our founding. Also, many people knit a variety of projects to help others: chemo caps, knitting a river, baby items for sick babies and crisis pregnancy centers, cloths to clean petroleum off wildlife during oil spills, and more.

Bogart's warm style make you want to curl up by the fire with your knitting needles, favorite yarn, and a hot mug of cocoa to knit something special for someone. She emphasizes the relationships that knitting helps build whether in a barracks in Iraq or a prison in the United States or a local yarn shop. This is a book that you can comfortably read a chapter, knit a few rows, and return to later.

In the second chapter Bogart offers several devotions ranging from Deuteronomy 11:18-19 through Hebrews 11:1. One of the devotions uses a version that sounded odd to me and made it hard to place the Scripture, but most are very recognizable.

One chapter deals with the bonds that develop through knitting, another with health benefits, another with projects to help others. Bogart describes individuals of all ages who have helped others by knitting from their own homes or by starting a group dedicated to helping others. One church knits scarves for the homeless in their area. A Catholic school teaches youngsters to knit in some special classes to give scarves and hats to needy youngsters. Someone started a prison ministry that taught the women to knit and paid them for the items that were then sold to benefit others.

Knit with Love is a pleasant book with a friendly, intimate style. It would make a nice read for the knitters in your life. It also might give you ideas of how your family, your recently widowed grandmother, or your Sunday school class might help others while relieving stress and making the world a better and more colorful place.

    If you're a knitter, your life is probably in this book. If you aren't, you'll probably wish you were after reading the stories here.

    It starts where every knitter starts by casting on and ends when you bind off and work in the loose ends.

    Every knit project is a project of love. No one knits something either for self or others without putting love in every stitch.

    Very often a knit project is one of prayer. These projects usually include items for charity. If you don't have a charity, I'll share mine with you. You can learn more about the Cheyenne River Reservation here.

    I think you'll enjoy this book as much as I have. Now I'm off to get back to those slippers I'm knitting for the elders at the rez.

    "Is your world filled with needs you may overlook while searching for the next big contribution you can make? Do you wonder how to use the talents you have? Maybe it's time to find new meaning and opportunities in something you're already eager to do." -Knit With Love, Lisa Bogart

    As soon as I read that at the end of Chapter 1, I was hooked. It seems I am one of those people always looking for a way to help someone (or an organization) with my crafts. I'm not a knitter but I think it can be the same feeling with other crafts. I feel I have a talent and want to make others happy with the fruits of that talent. So when I saw this quote, I knew this would be a book I would enjoy.

    I love the way Ms Bogart used the stories to motivate and inspire. Each story has encouraging, thought provoking assertion at the end to jump start the reader to search their own heart. You don't have to be a knitter to use those assertions.

    Whether you are a knitter, crocheter, or just a crafter, Knit with Love will be one of those books you'll want to keep nearby. Take a few minutes each day to read a story, get the inspiration you need, or just to reflect. You won't be sorry!

    I give Knit with Love 4 stars—the only reason it's not a 5 is that I sometimes got confused on who was telling the story. I guess it doesn't really matter but it I just like to know who is "talking".
