Customer Reviews for Knit with Love: Stories to Warm a Knitter's Heart
Review 1 for Knit with Love: Stories to Warm a Knitter's Heart
If you’re a knitter, your life is probably in this book. If you aren’t, you’ll probably wish you were after reading the stories here.
It starts where every knitter starts by casting on and ends when you bind off and work in the loose ends.
Every knit project is a project of love. No one knits something either for self or others without putting love in every stitch.
Very often a knit project is one of prayer. These projects usually include items for charity. If you don’t have a charity, I’ll share mine with you. You can learn more about the Cheyenne River Reservation here.
I think you’ll enjoy this book as much as I have. Now I’m off to get back to those slippers I’m knitting for the elders at the rez.

Review 2 for Knit with Love: Stories to Warm a Knitter's Heart
Inspiring and Encouraging
Date:October 18, 2011
“Is your world filled with needs you may overlook while searching for the next big contribution you can make? Do you wonder how to use the talents you have? Maybe it’s time to find new meaning and opportunities in something you’re already eager to do.” –Knit With Love, Lisa Bogart
As soon as I read that at the end of Chapter 1, I was hooked. It seems I am one of those people always looking for a way to help someone (or an organization) with my crafts. I’m not a knitter but I think it can be the same feeling with other crafts. I feel I have a talent and want to make others happy with the fruits of that talent. So when I saw this quote, I knew this would be a book I would enjoy.
I love the way Ms Bogart used the stories to motivate and inspire. Each story has encouraging, thought provoking assertion at the end to jump start the reader to search their own heart. You don’t have to be a knitter to use those assertions.
Whether you are a knitter, crocheter, or just a crafter, Knit with Love will be one of those books you’ll want to keep nearby. Take a few minutes each day to read a story, get the inspiration you need, or just to reflect. You won’t be sorry!
I give Knit with Love 4 stars—the only reason it’s not a 5 is that I sometimes got confused on who was telling the story. I guess it doesn’t really matter but it I just like to know who is “talking”.
