The Book

Book Cover Final - Finding the Thread LRFinding the Thread is not a ‘how to knit’ or ‘crochet step by step’ book, but rather a yarn spun about some South African knitters and crocheters.

It showcases resilient, creative women (and a few men) who are contributing to livelihoods in unexpected corners of our diverse country – places where decent work is hard to find. As they uplift and inspire groups of women with work that satisfies a creative need, they link the people who apply these ancient trades to other knitters worldwide … because we are all bound by the same thread.
