Publisher's Description

Knit, Purl, Pray is for the knitter who recognizes that when she is creating something beautiful with yarn, it is also a way to be quiet and reflect. The devotions make connections between knitting and all manner of things from joy and service to boredom and confession. These reflections help the reader think about the craft they love in a new way and perhaps see their problems as something that can be unraveled and reworked into something beautiful. Each new day is an opportunity to create something new.

    As a knitter, I thoroughly enjoyed this devotional. I love how the author takes the ordinary things we do when we knit and relates it to our Christian life. Each day made me continue to ponder those thoughts as I worked on the current project. This devotional is great for anyone who is a creative soul.

    I am a utilitarian knitter with mittens, dish cloths, and the occasional scarf as my only output, but even so, one of the things that is always in my sturdy, grab-and-go backpack is a pair of knitting needles holding my current knitting project. It may go for months untouched, but I value any time that I get to spend on it. Knit. Purl. Pray. by Lisa Bogart reminded me of all the reasons why. In the steady rhythm of following a pattern there is space for quiet reflection, and Lisa comes alongside her readers to fill those moments with a smile of recognition or a gentle conviction, but always a look toward heaven.

    Hard core knitters will delight in Lisas references to specific stitches and knitting terminology. He takes things away (K2tog), and He gives blessings (yarnovers). However, anyone who is devoted to an artistic pursuit in the context of believingly following Jesus Christ will benefit from her thoughts on focus, on prayer, on obedience and trust, as well as the scriptural basis for her insights.

    I especially appreciated the sense of awe Lisas devotionals inspire in considering the elegant dance of eye-hand coordination and muscle memory that goes into every knitted garment and that trumpets the miracle of Gods knitting us together so fearfully and wonderfully. It goes without saying that Knit. Purl. Pray should be a supplement to daily time reading in the Scriptures, and, then, each of the fifty-two readings ends with a prayer that stitches in place that days devotional thought.

    Years ago I received a hand-knitted sweater made by a dear friend, and I have always enjoyed wearing it not only because it is a thing of great beauty and warmth, but also because, although we rarely see each other now, through that sweater I have felt connected to my friend. Reading Lisas words, I know why: There is no doubt of the love behind the needles. I feel prayer is probably the most important part of the sweater. [As I knit], I wrap my loved one in prayer all year long.

    Every stitch wrapped in prayer.

    Every prayer wrapped in love.

    I cant think of a better reason for knitting!

    Early Christmas shopping tip: Knit. Purl. Pray along with the yarn and appropriate needles required to complete the two patterns included in the book would be a very thoughtful and unique gift for the crafters in your life!
