Yarn Harlot :

The Secret Life of a Knitter

by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

 

Rated: 5 Sheep

 

This is a book about knitting that was really fun to read. It's a collection of short essays about the joys and frustrations of being a Knitter - that's "Knitter" with a capital K as opposed to knitter (pages 162-163).

Stephanie is a popular blogger - you can find her weblog at The Yarn Harlot. I heard that some of these stories appeared on her blog but that most have not.

If you are a Knitter (even if you are a knitter) you will nod your head in agreement as you read this book - some of the subject matter includes stash, socks, gift knitting, designers, unfinished projects, tape measures, moths, crochet, steeking, wool allergy, and thieving squirrels. You will definitely laugh out loud. You probably will cry.

I usually read best sellers for 'can't put it down' reads and was surprised to find a knitting book that I was compelled to read cover to cover with hardly a break. My favorite story is the last one - she's in a complete panic when she can't find her very favorite dpn - what happened was....never mind - you'll have to read it to see how it turns out.

Respectfully submitted,
Robyn Diliberto
