Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 2/17/2014

    " Not nearly as good as her other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JK | 2/13/2014

    " I love the conceit of knitting as a destination with its own unique denizens. The quizzes about individual knitting styles are fun, as are the discussions of various aspects of knitting culture, such as the cultural institution of the yarn shop. The discussion of travel was particularly fun. Perhaps not as full of handy hints as "Knitting Rules", this was still a laugh-out-loud read in which I recognised a lot of myself and other knitters I know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 2/12/2014

    " It's not bad, for what it is, but if you read all of her books, they betray a certain sameness, even accounting for their all being about knitting. To that, I have no objection whatsoever; to running out of new things to say about a subject and yet continuing to write and sell books about it, I do. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 2/3/2014

    " Though amusing enough to make me giggle out loud, this latest offering from the Yarn Harlot retreads a great deal of ground already covered in her previous books and on her blog. I suggest reading this one in the bookstore - or, better yet, making sure the Harlot's blog feed is on your daily reading list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana * | 1/24/2014

    " Biased because I love the author - witty, wry, self deprecating, applicable to worlds beyond knitting, sly, just dang funny! Having met her at a book signing, just a lovely woman. I recommend all her books, as well as her blog. VEry funny!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/13/2014

    " I went to see her speak on her recent book tour. She was so funny. I liked the book. It it just about the crazy world of knitting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessicalynn | 1/5/2014

    " I really like the Yarn Harlot. I've read several of her other books and I faithfully read her blog. That being said, this book just did not entertain me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 1/4/2014

    " Not my favorite from the Yarn Harlot's repertoire but still full of helpful and humourous advice. I wasn't really a fan of the travel theme. That being said I did read it all in record time and had a few chuckles along the way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 11/24/2013

    " I loved the audio book. It felt like Stephanie was in the room talking to you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vivianne | 11/10/2013

    " What a fun read. Now if I could just get all my non-knitter friends to read this, Maybe they'd get it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kip | 11/5/2013

    " The author seems like a friendly enough person and a darn good knitter, but I really don't get the fuss about her and her books. If you like yarn and Andy Rooney, you will dig Yarn Harlot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A. | 10/9/2013

    " If you like knitting, and you can't use the restroom without reading, this book will find a cherished place in the basket by your toilet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fangirl | 10/9/2013

    " I love the books by Yarn Harlot, but I must say that this one is not quite as good as the others. But still a nice read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Danielle | 9/12/2013

    " Horrifically boring, could not finish it. This is one book to judge entirely by it's cover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chandra | 7/15/2013

    " I liked her 1st 2 books better, but I still really enjoyed it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 7/5/2013

    " Makes me really wish I had more knitting friends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Logo | 4/2/2013

    " As knitting books go I think this is probably a pretty good one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kendra Fletcher | 10/1/2012

    " My least favorite of Stephanie's usually great books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 5/30/2012

    " I liked the other one better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 4/28/2012

    " This book is for readers who are truly totally new to knitting. If you're already familiar with terms like "second sock syndrome" and the concept of the "stash," you probably won't find anything new here. A very lightweight book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 11/13/2011

    " A wonderful excursion to a knitting land of enchantment with a language all its own. The Yarn Harlot is the perfect tour guide into this land and all its nuances. I found it perfectly entertaining. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 9/30/2011

    " Eh. Picked it up from the library. Pretty quick read, pretty fluffy, very little actual knitting info. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Geeta | 8/1/2011

    " I am a big fan of the Yarn Harlot, but I found the writing really strained in this one. The travel metaphor would work well in an essay; in a book, it just wears thin. People who don't care about the writing itself, but just the humor and the content, won't have the same problem reading it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew (Ace) | 5/15/2011

    " Some laugh-out-loud parts, but it did start to feel like the same 3 jokes being repeated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vivianne | 4/23/2011

    " What a fun read. Now if I could just get all my non-knitter friends to read this, Maybe they'd get it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 1/9/2011

    " I loved the audio book. It felt like Stephanie was in the room talking to you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Logo | 2/10/2010

    " As knitting books go I think this is probably a pretty good one.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Petra | 11/5/2009

    " I love the books by Yarn Harlot, but I must say that this one is not quite as good as the others. But still a nice read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 10/26/2009

    " Listened to the audio version.

    I love her books! I especially love to sit and listen to them while knitting or partaking in one of my many craft addictions!

    So soothing and laugh-out-loud funny!

    I highly recommend any one of her books for any crafty type person! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 1/29/2009

    " Eh. Picked it up from the library. Pretty quick read, pretty fluffy, very little actual knitting info. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 12/28/2008

    " Always a good read for the knitting obsessed. When you are not knitting, it is good to read about knitting! "
