From the author of the modern classicThe Knitting Sutracomes an inspiring and colorful narrative on knitting through one's darkest hours. Susan Gordon Lydon's groundbreaking bookThe Knitting Sutraoffered a new way for knitters to look at their craft--as a healing and meditative endeavor instead of a granny hobby or an indulgent pastime. The first book without knitting patterns to capture the knitting audience, it has been widely imitated, but no other book has endured so well. WithKnitting Heaven and Earth, Lydon again breaks new ground, this time following the emotional ties that become bound up in her handicrafts when a series of wrenching events--a heartbreaking romance, the death of her father, a devastating diagnosis of breast cancer--leave her reeling. Through it all, Lydon finds new reserves of strength in knitting, in the skeins of sumptuous yarn and colorful thread that help her make sense of the trials of the heart.
