Record the beauty, emotions, and experiences of everyday life — not in your journal but with your knitting needles! Author Lea Redmond offers 32 enchanting projects that will inspire you to create beautiful finished pieces full of personal meaning and memories. Stock up on shades of blue, gray, and white and knit one strip of a scarf each day for a year, using the color that matches the sky on that day. When you’re done, you’ll have a unique memento of your year better than anything you can keep in a scrapbook. Or when you’re traveling, knit postcard-size swatches at each place you visit, using the colors you see around you. When the trip is over, piece the swatches together into a throw or scarf that will remind you of your journey every time you use it. Or knit a height-chart scarf for a beloved baby, starting with her length at birth and adding inches each year until you have the perfect gift for her 18th birthday. These are knitting projects like no other, resulting in one-of-a-kind heirlooms that tell a story only you can tell. Redmond provides instructions for all the stitches and techniques you need, as well as required patterns. 

Like journaling with knitting needles, this whimsical book of knitting projects invites knitters of all levels to use their craft as a creative vehicle for engaging with the world and recording daily experiences.

This is the most creative knitting book I have read. The projects are fun to imagine and I'm eager to start one of them. Redmond reminds us that art is fluid and not perfect. Even if you aren't a knitter, this book is full of good ideas. They could be completed with other mediums such as crochet or painting. The book is about using art to record memories and events that are important to you.
