Peaceful Projects to Soothe and Inspire
By Nikki Van De Car
Successful author and fiber artist Nikki Van De Car builds on the enthusiasm for both adult crafting and mindfulness activities with SereKNITy, a gentle, accessible guide to knitting and crocheting projects both beautiful and practical.
In today's fast-paced world we're all looking for a calm escape. SereKNITy: Peaceful Projects to Soothe and Inspire is a collection of more than twenty-five knitting and crochet projects, with one all-compassing theme: finding peace. The projects here are not complicated sweater patterns, but joyful, meditative fingerless gloves, granny squares, cowls, and dishcloths that encourage crafters to detach from the stress and anxiety of daily life. Peppered throughout with inspirational, intention-setting prompts and focused around three key themes-Color, Texture, and Structure-this book encourages knitters to be fully present in the moment. Fiber artist Nikki Van De Car gently guides readers to look inward as they think about the texture of the yarn and the way one color flows into the next, releasing their anxiety as they create something beautiful. This is meditative crafting of the very best kind.
