First Sentence
You don't need to know anything about the origins of knitting to enjoy this creative, inspiring and therapeutic activity - which is just as well, because nobody really knows when and where it all started. Read the first page

This book is the least interesting book I have ever bought
The author has written nothing that adds anything to the knitting experience and concentrates on creeping to people in the so called celeb culture
A waste of even a 1p

This book explains the -good- reasons we have to knit.
I felt like reading a magazine. I have no regret.

Completely pointless 24 Sept. 2006
By LBG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a long time and avid knitter I'm thrilled with the upswing in the popularity of the craft. With that comes both the brilliant and the boring. This book falls under the latter category. It's a basic history of knitting with pop culture references thrown in. If you have access to the internet then you have most of the pop culture portion at your fingertips. If you are looking for a history of knitting I would stick with "No idle hands" by Anne Macdonald. If you want wit and humor save your $10.19 for one of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's books.

Sorry to say, but pretty lame 5 Oct. 2006
By Serine E. Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dang, I just love knitting books and own too many. So whenever something that looks potentially hip comes out I get all excited. I try to check books out before ordering online, and I'm so glad I did. Be warned. This is not a knitting pattern book. This is instead what the call is design Circus layout. There are lots of pictures and quotes and tidbids etc. It's a small book that seems like one of those gifty "Why friends are great" kind of books. I suppose if you like reading about knitting culture and not actually knitting this is your book and could maybe go along in some sort of knitting care package, but otherwise I don't get it. I suppose it has some redeeming qualities, but if you want something cute or kitschy with actual patterns check out Mason-Dixon, Stitch 'n Bitch or Alterknits.

Forgettable 8 Jan. 2007
By Knits in Tardis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Cute title. Some cute "scary pictures" of ill-conceived knitwear from days gone by. It's peppy, breezy VH1 (as in "I love the <decade>") - style "content", more than a book. Note to publishers: that coveted 18-35 year old targeted demographic is full of intelligent knitters who roll their eyes at meaningless and overused marketing terms like "hip", "urban" "funky" or "not your grandmother's..."

Waste Time 23 Jan. 2007
By Debbie C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Do not waste your money or even more important, your time with this book. It reminded me off a middle schooler's report on the knitting community. The book is all down hill from the title.

So much less sex 8 May 2012
By Ollie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book contains very little information about how to knit. It however, provides ample information to read to occupy my wife in times that could otherwise be used for intercourse with myself (or someone else as far as that is concerned).
