It's a small paperback, and fun to read.

Lara's Library: Zen and the Art of Knitting

Lara Neel - The Journal Gazette
I like that each chapter begins with a description of a different knitting stitch.

Zen and the Art of Knitting by Bernadette Murphy was published in 2002, and is easy to find online.

Each of the book's 10 chapters begins with a short description of a knitting stitch - literally, the knit stitch, for the first chapter.

I wasn't too sure about this book at first, but the very first sentence of the introduction grabbed me. "Knitting a sweater is a tremendous act of faith."

And it is.

This isn't in the most basic sense, a knitting book that includes very many patterns. Instead, it encompasses starting points. Even, in the back, a "basic get-going pattern". Which, pretty much sums it up.
