We've made the decision not to take orders for physical products at this time, so that our team can stay at home and we aren't straining resources like the postal service, until clearer guidance is issued by the Scottish or UK government. Thank you for understanding.

In The Year of Knots, Chien describes how her knot-making project led her on a path of discovery. The book combines projects, tutorials, and transformative personal stories, all aimed at inspiring readers to make knotting—and creativity in general—part of a meditative daily practice. The knots in the book are gorgeously documented step-by-step for the many knot- and macramé-obsessed readers out there wanting to try it themselves. Knotted projects abound: a necklace, a dog leash, along with wall hangings and a hanging light.

At the heart of the story is the simple, empowering idea that a single year is all the time you need to make a life-changing creative leap.
