Knitting for Peace review

Knitting for Peace: Make the World a Better Place One Stitch at a Time written by Betty Christiansen

Knitting for Peace is an exceptional book that celebrates the long heritage of knitting for others. It tells the stories of 28 contemporary knitting-for-peace endeavors, and features patterns for easy-to-knit charity projects such as hats, socks, blankets, and bears, plus a messenger bag emblazoned with the Knitting for Peace logo. Enlivened by anecdotal sidebars and quotations from both knitters and peacemakers, this inspiring book also includes everything readers need to know to start their own knitting-for-peace groups.

My Review:

When I was presented with the opportunity to review Knitting for Peace by the publisher I was ecstatic.  After all, how appropriate that I review a book celebrating knitting for charities during my "40 in 40" challenge.  I didn't know what to expect other than the description above when I agreed, but what I found really surprised me.
