This knitting/crocheting book offers fourteen projects that are fun to make, while allowing the knitter to escape the stresses of the day. Using basic knitting and crocheting techniques, make throws, baby wraps, meditative yoga mats, a table runner, scarves, baby blankets, wrist warmers, and pillows. As the stitches unfold into an amazing art form, the warm colors will help soothe the mind and body. Design patterns are broken down, row by row, in easy-to-follow instructions. The use of color, combined with the ease of the designs and the pattern stitches, provide knitters and crocheters of all skill levels a chance to unwind as they complete these wonderfully colorful yet simple projects.

Years later, she opened her shop, A Garden of Yarn, located in Olde Ridge Village, Chadd?

The store? motto is: ?o knitting or crochet question is impossible to resolve in our shop!?(To contact the store, call 601-459-5599 or visit its website at
