The 20 original-design projects included in this book are meant to convey an special meaning -- a symbol of good luck, courage, serenity, or passion -- by including personal elements in their creation or use. Projects range from easy-to-knit gifts and accessories to beautiful wearable garments. All are inspired by aspects of the natural world, contemplative themes drawn from Shambhala Buddhism and Eastern arts, such as Feng Shui, or, in some cases, Western notions of the magical and mindful.
In Compassionate Knitting, author Tara Jon Manning, a noted knitwear designer and practicing Buddhist, shows you how to tap into the compassion and joy that is a natural part of the knitting experience. You'll learn how to deepen your relationship with the craft while awakening your compassion and connecting with the basic goodness of the world. Compassionate Knitting provides you with an enjoyable path for personal development through knitting.
