The nice folks at Running Press sent me a copy of this AMAZING new book to review. And they also sent me TWO copies to giveaway! Details on entering the giveaway are below.

Free Serene Pattern: Ming Tree

This is probably my all-time fave project that I’ve designed that definitely helped me feel centered and serene:

I just loved the simplicity of the skirt pattern, then taking the time to watch the blossoming cherry tree branches come to life as I surface crocheted them with ribbon and beaded silk yarn.

Sereknity: Peaceful Projects to Soothe and Inspire

To start with the book itself is so beautiful. The pages are NOT bright white but a soothing taupe color. And along with gorgeous photography there are sweet illustrations too.

The projects are not complicated sweater patterns, but joyful, meditative fingerless gloves, granny squares, cowls, and dishcloths (for example) that encourage us to detach from the stress and anxiety of daily life.

Who doesn’t long for that, right?!

Peppered throughout with inspirational, intention-setting prompts and focused around three key themes – color – texture – structure – it really encourages the fiber artist to be fully present in the moment.

Here are a few of my fave projects in the book:

So beautiful!! And I can’t tell you how happy I am to see BOTH crochet and knit included in one book. I just think they go so well together and Nikki proves it with this book! Here are some technical deets:
