Knitting for Peace PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Knitting for Peace free pdf All across the world, people are knitting for peace. You'll often find them gathered in private homes, at knitting guild meetings, in churches and synagogues, in elementary schools, even in prisons. They call the work they do "charity knitting." They knit afghans for families in need, preemie caps for AIDS babies, mittens for homeless children, socks for soldiers on missions, hats for women coping with breast cancer treatments. "Knitting for Peace" tells the stories of 28 knitting-for-peace endeavours, with smaller, more anecdotal stories shared in corresponding sidebars. And though it promises to be a fun and inspiring read, liberally sprinkled with quotes by famous knitters and peacemakers, "Knitting for Peace" also offers practicial, hands-on information, including 15 patterns for easy-to-knit charity projects as well as lists of places that accept charity knitting, tips for starting knitting-for-peace groups and charity knit-ins and information on finding local charity knitting outlets - hospitals, homeless shelters, etc.
