Take an awl to the board that comprises the front cover, and create holes through which you can hand stitch your knitting to it? Or perhaps just add to your knitting a few ribbed bands to create a book covering of sorts (like the kind that schoolkids use to cover their textbooks?)

Duct tape and zipties will fix EVERYTHING!

I made a knitted book cover - I used thin plastic canvas - the smaller size holes - cut two pieces a little narrower the the width of the cover. Sew the knitting on three sides and slip it on as you would any book cover...

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
