|Robyn Devine with her family|
I've always been fascinated by the "why" of people's behaviour and choices. I was recently sent a copy of an ebook, courtesy of https://asymmetrical.co/, to review that plays exactly into my interest. It's written by Robyn Devine and is her personal story of her effort to knit 10,000 hats for people all over the world. The publisher is allowing me to give an electronic copy of the book She Makes Hats to one of my readers. There will be contest details at the end of this post.
The book is a charming, quick little read. It's one half memoir and one half an explanation and analysis on how an individual can find meaning and purpose in the simplest things in life.
Robyn explains both the importance of knitting to her and to the world at large. I knew by page four that I would enjoy reading about her journey when she described her transition from a non-knitter in yarn shop vowing to never invest time and money in such a "frivolous thing" to " a woman possessed".
You can find Robyn's web site and her free patterns here.
