Every once in awhile a book comes along that not only informs, but absolutely inspires you to change the way you approach your creative projects and changes who you are as an artist. Knit the Sky by Lea Redmond is one of those books. It encourages you to undertake projects that go beyond the choosing of pattern and yarn and invites you to pour your own experiences and environment into a project to infuse it with meaning and sentiment.
Full of beautiful illustrations, and peppered with intriguing ideas, Knit the Sky truly does prompt you to Cultivate Your Creativity with a Playful Way of Knitting that will delight individuals and galvanize knitting groups.
The title project – “Knit the Sky” instructs that “Each day, you will knit a stripe in colors that match that particular day’s sky, slowly creating your own wearable weather report.”
The author walks you through 31 engaging projects, then gives you the tools to invent your very own.
After reading through the book, I’ll never again travel without creating Patchwork postcards – swatches knit from local yarns to remind me of my travel destinations
I can’t wait to start my own Mood Ring – a wonderfully colorful cowl that’s a knit version of the 1970’s mood ring.
Artistic knitters will find this book to be so poetic and uplifting – elevating your knitting projects into one of a kind gifts and treasures that reflect your own view of the world and ask you to find a deeper meaning in the act of creation.
