Review: Love in Every Stitch
Lee Gant shares her stories of knitting and healing in Love in Every Stitch. Gant tells the reader parts of her personal journey and how knitting saved her life. Along the way, she invited others to share their stories.
Knitting, like reading, can be very addicting, healing, relaxing, and exciting. It's a past time that can take you places because readers and knitters also want to know and share with others around them. Just as I want to knit one more stitch, I want to read more page, or listen to one more minute in my audiobook. Love in Every Stitch was a difficult book to set aside for other activities that needed my attention.
I wanted to read Love in Every Stitch to know more about the knitting community. I consider myself a beginning knitter. My great-grandmas knitted dishcloths and I adored those dishcloths. After several years, I found friends who knit, I found the pattern online, and I learned to knit! It's been very rewarding to make those dishcloths for myself and for others.
Dawn Harvey shared Lee Gant's stories on audiobook. I felt that Harvey's voice fit very well with the tone of the book. Her voice reminded me of a mother or grandmother sharing a story. This is a non-fiction biographical book, so dynamic flare was not needed and I think Harvey captured the emotions well. I would listen to Dawn Harvey again, as well as a another story by Lee Gant. If you enjoy knitting or biographies, I would highly recommend Love in Every Stitch.
