Debbie Macomber calls KNIT TOGETHER the project of her heart. Whenever she speaks, her theme is simple: don't be afraid to dream. God created us for a reason, and when we come to recognize our deepest longing, we can discover His plan for our lives. Full of encouragement and divine empowerment for women, the book centers around the Bible's assurance that God knits each one of us together in our mother's womb. Debbie deftly weaves her own story throughout the book, using the knitting theme of her most recent bestsellers to create metaphors that explore God's handiwork in creating us for a purpose.

To Knit or Not to Knit is a unique Dear Abby/mini-knitting essay collection, offering humorous tales of triumph and terror on the needles, with a witty nod to the famous and infamous throughout history. As Mrs. Wicks happily quotes everyone from William Shakespeare to Beatrix Potter, she adds her own wit and wisdom to answer a variety of questions on knitting ranging from, Is there a quick fix for dropped stitches? to My boyfriend says my passion for knitting is stronger than my passion for him—what should I do? A number of Mrs. Wicks’ own patterns are sprinkled throughout, along with her sound advice for stitches dropped and love gone wrong. Ever the optimist, she advises her readers to pick up their needles, dust off their hearts, and cast on without looking back. Knitter and non-knitters alike will enjoy this literary look at life lessons offered through a wooly lens, from Pablo Narudo’s poem “Ode to My Socks” (hand knit of course), to Ogden Nash’s witty words on the frustration of being married to a knitter, To Knit or Not to Knit is a quirky, enjoyable read, making it the perfect gift for the passionate knitter and thoughtful reader alike.

The birth of a baby is a celebration, and Special Knits is based on our need to create lovingly-made items for new little people, in soft yarns that are gentle against delicate skin. Each stitch is invested with affection and care by the knitter. Some of the designs in this book are simple to make - their special quality lies in the softness of the fabric, usually a cashmere mix. There are other projects where the uniqueness of the design comes from a scattering of beads, a velvet bow, or an organza ribbon that frames the gentle curve of a baby’s cheek. Most of the designs require little knowledge of complicated techniques; a simple garter-stitch blanket is perfect for a beginner and is given a touch of luxury with an edging of satin. Easy knits are embellished with a ribbon or a scattering of beads, while for those knitters who prefer more of a challenge, there is a sampler blanket or a cross-stitch embroidered gingham cardigan. What better gift for a new-born than to create a special hand-knitted and unique garment. In an age of the throwaway, these are garments that will become the modern classic, knits to cherish and hand down through generations.

This book compiles the stories, stats, and facts of the world's most amazing knits, from a handknit Ferrari on display at the British Auto Show (knitting the car took 12 miles of yarn) to the American flag knit with utility poles and cranes—and everything in between (a plate of sushi; a handknit wedding, including the flowers and the cake; a cozy for a house). This will be a Guinness Book of World Records for knitters. Each entry features color photos, an explanation of how the object was made, and other interesting details, including how much yarn was used, how long it took to make, how many people contributed stitches, the project dimensions, and more.

The ladies of the #1 New York Times bestselling Friday Night Knitting Club return in a moving, laugh-out-loud celebration of special times with friends and family… Whipping up chocolate-orange scones at pastry school is Dakota Walker’s passion, but she’ll never give up the Friday Night Knitting Club at Walker and Daughter, the coziest yarn shop in Manhattan. The club is also a haven for Peri, Darwin, Lucie, K.C., Anita, and Catherine—Dakota’s dearest friends, big sisters, and sometimes surrogate mothers. With the holidays just around the corner, the women have reason to celebrate: There’s a special wedding planned for New Year’s Day. And in the meantime, Dakota is finishing a sweater her mother started before she was born. As she takes on her mother’s pattern, she learns that there was much more history in these stitches than she had anticipated, and to build on her mother’s legacy, Dakota must become the woman she truly desires to be.

It was my intention to publish this third volume of the ‘Knit India through Literature' project, compiling works from Konkani, Marathi, Gujarati and Sindhi languages which are spoken in Western India, in the year 2002. There are three primary reasons why this did not happen. The first reason was that I was actively involved in serialising my novels on Madras Doordarshan and Sun TV, which were received very well by the public and even won the Best Serial awards. With a view to adding to the glory of the Tamil language, I went about the task of compiling the best short stories of sixty senior Tamil writers, the unique feature of which was that the short stories were selected as their best by the respective writers themselves, and publishing them in two volumes. This is the second reason. There is yet another reason, which I shall come to later. Although both the earlier mentioned tasks were accomplished in a most satisfactory manner, I was really unhappy because my attention was diverted and that resulted in the progress of the ‘Knit India through Literature’ project being delayed. Anyway, the last two years events have proved to me that my decision not to write fiction, which would certainly divert and occupy my time, for the past ten years, ever since I started work on the 'Knit India through Literature’ project, is indeed right. However, at this juncture when this volume compiling the Western languages is ready for release, it heartens me that I have already finished my interviews with the Punjabi writers and begun preliminary work on the Kashmiri language as well. This gives me hope that my volume on the North Indian languages will be released as per schedule. As I sit down to write the preface for this volume, my thoughts go back to the pain of a loss - the sad and sudden demise of Sri. G.K. Moopanar - that I suffered two years ago. It was the Late G.K. Moopanar who was a great source of encouragement to me and proclaimed at the launch of the 'Knit India through Literature’ project, that my victory was his own. His support was not merely verbal and in fact he supported the publishing of the first volume of ‘Knit India through Literature’ financially and also bought three hundred copies of the volume and distributed them to school libraries at free of cost. I wish to acknowledge his contribution at this stage and also pray that his blessings will help me bring out the fourth volume successfully too. I have already elaborated in the prefaces to the earlier volumes, the difficulties encountered in going and meeting the different language writers in their own homes, interviewing them and then transcribing the tapes. Differences in pronunciation and other problems caused a few factual errors to creep in when the volume on the eastern languages was published and this was pointed out by the concerned writers. In order to avoid this. I made it a point to send the compiled interviews to the concerned writers requesting them to check for factual errors. Most of the writers were gracious enough to respond to the request immediately and sent back the corrected interviews at the earliest. This is the most important third reason for the delay in this volume being published. Of the writers whom I met in Western India, the affection and care displayed by the Konkani and the Gujarati writers is truly unique. Having realised that it was quite expensive to have to travel to each state atleast thrice or four times, the Konkani writers invited me to attend a literary meet organised at Goa and address the gathering. Senior Oriya writer ‘Manoj Das' information filled foreword lends to the quality of this volume. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to him and all others who have supported me and extended their co-operation in the publication of this volume. - Sivasankari CHENNAI August 2003
