Repetitive and not particularly interesting. Kind of a "duh" kind of book. But not so bad if you're into self-help and knit or if you don't know a lot about Buddhism in practice. ( )

While I thought leaving the different stitch patterns between patterns to be kind of wonky, I did enjoy the book as a whole. As I become more and more involved in the craft, I find that I identify more with Ms. Murphy. ( )
