Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is an excellent knitter, and writes extremely enjoyable books, publishes her patterns and runs a knitting blog. If you are a knitting enthusiast and have never bought any of her books, read her blog or tried her knitting patterns
please have a look. I am sure you too will be captivated. My daughter and I are.

If you are hooked on knitting and haven't yet come across this writer, I recommend you to put this book at the head of your "what I would like someone to give for my next birthday/Christmas present" list.
It is made up of a series of ruminations on life from a knitter's perspective, most of it all too familiar to the addicted, so it's good to know that you are not alone out there. Good to have a copy to pick up and put down, by the side of your bed, in the loo, on a boring journey.

If you enjoy knitting and reading blogs you have probably come across the 'yarn harlot' blog by the author of this book. Like her blog, this is a witty look at her life often explaining why knitters are completely sane and it is everybody else that is mad. I think this is the third volume of essays she has published and they are all very good. Well worth a read.
