A Superb Collection of Techniques to Study and Projects to Make
by Janet Ramsey Conrad
For many years, Janet’s knitting students—from beginners through advanced—encouraged her to “write all those lessons down and publish a book.” No matter your level, no matter where you join Janet along the way, your skills and completed projects will benefit from these lessons—with their emphasis on techniques, swatches, illustrations and clear instructions for many beautiful projects at every stage.
Too often knitters are disappointed with the appearance of a finished project. This disappointment is often due to a lack of knowledge of techniques.
A Knitting Journey will guide you on your own personal quest for knitting knowledge. By applying this knowledge you will be able to produce garments and projects that bring you only satisfaction upon completion.
About the Author
Janet Ramsey Conrad has had an avid interest in the needle arts from a very young age. She is a self-taught knitter. With the help of books from the local library, she embarked on a quest for knowledge of knitting techniques and how to use them. This paved the way for her to become a Master Knitter, instructor, and designer. In A Knitting Journey, Janet shares some of this acquired knowledge with readers everywhere. She is passionate about stopping environmental destruction of the planet. To that end she lives and runs her home organically and sustainably. She tries to use resources responsibly and to live with and not against the rhythm of the earth.
Janet founded and runs a charitable organization whose sole purpose is to serve Native Americans. As part of this work she has spent a week each summer for the past 20 years teaching knitting to the Lakota Indians in South Dakota.

She and her husband divide their time between their home in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and their log house in the woods of northern Maine.
The quality of her life is greatly enhanced by nature, good music, and a very large amount of wool.
