SereKNITy: Peaceful Projects to Soothe and Inspire weaves mindful crafting and peaceful reflection into this simple, yet beautiful, collection of knitting and crochet patterns. The projects here are not the complicated sweater patterns found in traditional knitting guides, but simple, beautiful objects anyone can create. Practical crafts, like fingerless gloves and mug cozies, are featured alongside more meditative patterns, like granny squares and crocheted flowers. Each is paired with an inspirational, intention-setting prompt and falls under an overarching theme-Color, Texture, or Structure-that encourages knitters and crocheters of all skill levels to be fully present in the moment. Author and crafter Nikki Van De Car gently guides readers to look inward as they work, releasing their anxiety as they create something beautiful. For experienced knitters and novices alike, this is meditative crafting of the very best kind.
