First off, the title is where you will find the most "compassion" in the book. There is barely any discourse on the subject and if you are to truley knit with her brand of "compassion" or "mindfulness" then you are assumed to have read the first book. There is almost no explanation of compassion, holding mindfulness, or knitting as meditation in this slim volume, unless you count one or two sentences in the two-page introduction.
This slim volume contains very cute "zen style" patterns. The cloud pillow, stars jumper set for a child and other items are simply lovely, modern and clean in style without being too fussy or full of knitting cliches.
Perhaps what is disappointing to me is that I was looking for a discussion of compassionate knitting and not simply a catchy title for a slim volume of cute patterns. A more appropriate title would have been, Knitting Patterns in a "Zen" Style for Today's Knitter.
I have to say that I was not overly impressed with most of the clothing designs presented here, except for the home decor ideas. THe garment designs presented here are quite blocky in nature.
My other reservation in recommending this book is that it does not offer much knitting instruction. This book presumes that the reader has mastered most basic knitting skills. To me, this book was more about inspiring meditation than inspiring knitting.
My main complaint is the lack of colour. The greyscale illustrations accompanying the patterns are supplemented with the tiniest of colour inserts in the middle. If the color printing process is too expensive for the whole book, I'd at least like the photos to be bigger when they are in color. There are about 4 projects depicted on each plate that just aren't large enough to show the potential.
The designs themselves are appropriately minimalist, with few embellishments, and could easily be modified for a more personal, less stark look. Done well enough for what it is, but just not my cup of tea.
