Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Are you tired of "doing" all the time? Feeling frantic, frazzled and full of FOMO (fear of missing out)? Then it's time to slow down, disconnect from your screens, put your feet up and enjoy some JOMO (JOY of missing out).

This inspirational book of 21 gorgeous knitting projects also includes insights into how to use knitting to unwind from the relentless demands of our over-stimulated and digitalized lives and rediscover how to connect with ourselves, and those around us, in a more meaningful way. Included are special sections exploring the link between knitting and JOMO, along with humorous observations and lists.

Includes index.

Booklist Review

If the slow-food movement had a crafty cousin, who took a page from hygge, the result would be Boggis's JOMO Knits: a collections of projects intended to celebrate the joy of missing out. Divided into three sections ­­Nest, Explore, and Share the book's 21 projects are knits made with a thicker yarns and that take just the right amount of time: not too short for knitters to enjoy the project, and not so long that the project feels never-ending. The results are big, cozy sweaters and hats and gloves to keep knitters warm in all their JOMO glory (though they'll also probably be tempted to turn their screens back on and share a snap on social media). Amid the usual-suspect tips and tricks, Boggis expands on her premise of JOMO and mindfulness with short sections on, for instance, finding more time to knit and knitting for a cause. Knitters looking for satisfying projects to settle in and knit and cozy finished products to burrow down in will find exactly what they're looking for here.--Mary Kravenas Copyright 2019 Booklist
