Knit One, Purl Two

Lisa Bogart wrote a book for knitters titled Knit With Love; Stories to Warm a Knitter’s Heart.

And it does.

In Knit With Love, we read stories about knitters and what they have done with their knitting. Like Irene Silliman who started Operation Toasty Toes. Her grandson requested some of her great knit slippers and she ended up sending enough for his whole troop and then some. She still knits her Toasty Toes and sends them to our boys serving overseas.

We read about friendships that are formed because of a common bond in knitting. It’s true. As soon as you take out your knitting you will be inundated with people wanting to know what you’re making, how long you’ve been knitting. People will also tell you stories about their grandmothers, mothers, or aunts who knit. If they knit as well they are very quick to offer any tips and tricks they might have. They also know  all the good places to buy yarn.

We read a little of the history of knitting.

When I was reading Knit With Love I was inspired to begin making hats and scarves for the homeless in my city and those in nearby areas.  I am about 1/4 to 1/2 finished with my first scarf.  I am hoping to recruit some more people to help make scarves and hand them out.

This is the perfect gift for the knitter in your life…even if it’s you!
