It makes a return to the timeless, unchanging qualities of knitting knitting to clothe, protect, wrap, comfort, enhance, insulate for all seasons and to show off the beauty of the stitch, the real joy and intimacy of knitting, and to emphasise that the slow, meditative, unhurried process counts just as much as the end product. Jane offers 25 patterns for knitting simple, honest, projects that are practical, easy to knit, easy to wear and use, and made with beautiful fibres in gorgeous colours inspired by nature s own comforts. From a Plaited Dough Blanket and a Cake Cushion to a Tweedy Scarf and a Beribboned Beret Jane s designs are knits that you will want to stay around, that have life in the fabric of them, and are part of the fabric of life.
