The yarn harlot takes time away from her knitting to offer
observations, meditations, reflections, and rants to soothe and delight the
knitter’s unraveled soul.
Like golfing, fishing, and gardening, knitting is an
obsession. It’s an activity fraught with guilt, frustration, over-optimism, sly
deception, and compulsion, along with passionate moments of creative
enlightenment—not to mention heaps of yarn you really think you’ll knit
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee totally understands. In this
hilarious collection of tangled reflections, she offers ample reassurance for
anyone who has ever wondered, “am I alone in my mania?” Casting off with some
of her favorite quotations, she muses on why it’s impossible to knit too much,
how many calories knitting burns (about ninety an hour, not counting the extra for
retrieving your ball of yarn from under the couch), and when it’s okay to stalk
a man in the grocery store (not because he’s good-looking, but because he’s
wearing an Aran sweater you want to know how to knit).
The first step toward recovery is getting help—and having a
good laugh at your compulsion. At Knit’s
End is a wicked and wickedly funny fix for any knitter. Download and start listening now!
