The Power of Knitting: Stitching Together Our Lives in a Fractured World

by Loretta Napoleoni Author

From someone that normally writes on global finance, Loretta Napoleoni weaves a different perspective on the craft of knitting. Napoleoni takes different strands and stitches them together: part personal experience, parts from history from North America to China, Egypt to Peru, she's strung together different accounts of how people, most notably women, have contributed to social and political movements through their craft. She drives the point that knitting has played an important role in human development and survival, one more powerful than meets the eye of the needle.
