ABOUT THE BOOKS:
The Knit Vibe: A Knitter’s Guide to Creativity, Community, and Well-being for the Mind, Body & Soul
A knitting adventure with projects, patterns, rituals, yoga, creative inspiration, numerology, knitting experts, astrology, community, and more!
What if we look at our lives through the lens of the conduit that streams our creativity? In her latest book (October 2019) The Knit Vibe: A Knitter’s Guide to Creativity, Community, and Well-Being for Mind, Body & Soul, author Vickie Howell pens a love letter to yarn craft. In it, she explores how for those in the knitting and crochet community, the act of creating with fiber is the through-line of how we choose to navigate life.
Crochet with London Kaye: Project and Ideas to Yarn Bomb Your Life
Full of tips and techniques on crochet, types of yarn bombing, and at-home projects for the beginner and advanced crocheter, Crochet with London Kaye promises to engage and inspire crafty readers around the world. With beautiful photos of her most admired street art pieces, yarn artist London Kaye brings the lesser-known world of yarn bombing into focus, with the added bonus of more than a dozen of her most sought-after patterns: crochet covers for your sneakers, a vibrant oral case for that blue IKEA bag everyone has at home, or her signature eyeball that you can personalize and add to your own bag, jacket, or attire of your choosing. Her projects are unlike anything else you’ll find today, and this book is the only place you can find them. Yarn has always been a popular medium, but in the hands of artists like Kaye, it becomes a vibrant new form for expression and personal creativity.
This event is free, but please RSVP by clicking "add to cart" above. You will be taken through the checkout process to complete your reservation, but you will not be charged!
