It’s the universal sense of community and passion for knitting that is at the heart of ‘For the love of knitting’, an anthology that pays tribute to this popular pastime and to those who knit. The wide variety of personal essays and stories celebrate the appeal and love of this age-old art. The funny, heartwarming, and sometimes sad tales by Jamaica Kincaid, Elizabeth Zimmermann, Melanie Falick, Meg Swansen, Perri Klass, Pam Allen, Naomi Dagen Bloom, Susan Gordon Lydon, Lela Nargi, and Teva Durham touch on all aspects of knitting, from shearing the sheep to knitting the first stitch; from knitting for the war effort to giving a finely knitted hat, sweater, or socks as a gift. An array of artwork, including current and historical photographs, vintage ads, pattern booklets, and paintings – featuring the artistry of Chris Hartlove, Solveig Hisdal, Debbie New, and Karen Searle – complements the text.
