Food, family and knitting? What do these three things have in common – they have the potential to bring families together. If I had to choose a few themes to describe the book, A Knitter’s Home Companion, these three words would definitely be a part of the mix. Together with a combination of recipes, free knitting patterns and charming anecdotes, author Michelle Edwards takes the reader on a journey throughout her life.
You will not only have patterns and recipes to keep you busy, but every page is accompanied by one of Edwards original drawings. This book possesses an unexplainable beauty, a beauty which likely stems from the book’s keen eye for simplicity. Whether you are an avid cooker or knitter, or even if you’ve never done either before, this book would make a wonderful addition to anyone’s library.
Here’s a short excerpt from the book:
“Knitting is not just a metaphor. Knitting is a life. And because my knitting flows into what i draw and write, what I cook, and what I read, this illustrated gathering of stories is connected to recipes, patterns, and books. Let it keep you company when you need another knitter’s voice beside you.”
