  • Knit 1 Bike 1: a knitting & cycling tour of Scotland

    Author: Janet Renouf-Miller | ISBN: 978-0-9954702-0-0

    Knit 1 Bike 1 is the light-hearted story of a woolly cycle journey around Scotland. Textile artist Janet Renouf-Miller cycled over 800 miles on her Brompton folding bicycle, connecting with people, telling their stories and giving workshops all over Scotland.  The book is the story of her adventures and the people she met. Janet commemorated the journey not only by writing this book but by knitting and crocheting what she saw. She made woolly versions of everything from the Glenfinnan Viaduct (made famous by J K Rowling’s Harry Potter books), to her bicycle, worms and a sponge cake. There are many pictures in the book, both of Janet’s adventures and of the things that Janet crocheted or knitted. Full colour, 184 pages, £12.95.

    There’s a crash coming – a slap from Mother Nature. This isn’t pessimistic; it’s realistic.

    The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.

    We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
