Read from the Book

Knitters have their own rules, their own society, and their own limits. How else can you explain millions and millions of people who all understand that it is reasonable to buy an outrageous amount of yarn because you heard it's discontinued, but completely unreasonable to think that you're going to finish knitting all of it before you die? How else do we all know the password, pantheons of us, in every corner of the globe, all quietly muttering 'just one more row.'

Editorial Reviews

"Her insights into the workings of a yarn-a-holic's mind are charming."
