The Year of Knots

The Year of Knots

If you’re in the market for a slow living hobby, may we suggest something you might not have even thought of before… knots?

Yep, knots. Behold Windy Chien’s The Year of Knots, where she walks you through more types of knots than you knew were possible.

The knots Windy teaches can be used as wall-hangings, dog leashes, to adorn bags–there are never-ending possibilities for use. But, what’s most amazing is the meditative effects one feels from spending time in your head and using your hands. Much like knitting or crocheting, there is something undoubtedly therapeutic about using your hands to, physically, mold an object into existence.

Windy’s book will be available starting September 17th. Pre-order here!
