Knit Red: Stitching for Women's Heart Health
 
Great patterns and a great cause all in one book. Gorgeous knitwear--that does good! The knitting community has always come together to support a great cause, and Knit Red once again attests to knitters' generous, giving spirit. These 30 beautiful red-themed projects help raise awareness of the number-one killer of women today: heart disease. 
 
I was honored to contribute a pattern and write the forward as heart disease runs in my family.  All of the patterns are donated by top designers including Debbie Stoller, Nicky Epstein, Debbie Bliss, Norah Gaughan, Deborah Norville, Melissa Morgan-Oakes, Iris Schreier, Jared Flood, and Ysolda Teague. In addition, the book offers important medical information, a Heart Healthy Resources and Action Plan, and powerful stories from survivors of this deadly ailment.
