Palm Beach interiors have long reflected the travels, penchants, and whimsies of the town’s worldly inhabitants. Today, residents of this tiny barrier island call upon world-class designers to create homes that are testaments to what can be achieved when inspired by the natural beauty of a unique locale and when imagination is one’s only limitation.

Like the “slow food” movement, Slow Knitting encourages knitters to step back, pare down, and celebrate the craftsmanship of their work.

Each chapter contains explorations of fiber types, profiles of well-known yarn types, makers, yarn suppliers, and garment patterns inspired by the featured fibers. With contributions from knitting superstars Norah Gaughan, Bristol Ivy, and many others, Slow Knitting proposes an approach to knitting that is both minimalist and all-encompassing, and emphasizes what makes knitting a meditation, a passion, and a unique necessity.
