I really loved this book and constantly found myself laughing out loud. Everything rang true for me. I would totally recommend this book to anyone who is addicted to knitting as in this author you will have found a kindred spirit. Great book.

Firstly, you need to know that this is not a book about how to knit ( although you will find the odd useful tip ).
It's a very enjoyable and humorous look at what it means to be an avid knitter - if you are one, you will recognise yourself.There are many truisms in this book.
Small enough to fit in your handbag, it's amusing to delve into if you are not able to actually pick up your knitting.

Let me open with a rather bold statement: I have NEVER laughed as much and as often and as loud at a book as I have at this one...There is one little chapter that I can only read about 3 lines at a time (followed by a 30 second break while I laugh my head off). I literally end up with tears down my face, it is THAT funny! One very important caution though: I know from experience that it's only this funny if you're a knitter (I went through a phase of wanting to make everyone read it). If you don't knit, there will be whole sections that'll go completely over your head and have you wondering what on earth's so funny about it. Those will be the sections that will have a knitter collapsing with mirth. If you just do not "get" what in the world the attraction of knitting is, then don't read this book, as it will not enlighten you nor make you want to knit. If you are a knitter though, PLEASE read it....

First, I have to say that I have not read this book yet. I'm just about to order it. However, I have been reading Stephanie's knitting blog - Yarn Harlot - for over a year now. She posts every day and her words of wisdom, her love for her family and her mitten obsession have made her the best friend I've never met. I'm looking forward to reading more "purls" of wisdom from Ms McPhee.

a great little book for your knitting bag or hand bag, when you cant knit you can read about it. the black hole of knitting is so true, you measured your work and it's ex number of inches, knit all night, measure it a gain, and its the same! the black hole of knitting has struck again...

- writing greatly appreciated by the knitter I bought it for
- I would recommended it as a present to any serious knitter (or anyone becoming a serious knitter) who also has a sense of humour!

PS I offered to the same person 2 more books from same author:
- Yarn Harlot
- Things I learned from knitting

I love this book so much. It encapsulates the very heart of the meaning and value of my favourite craft. Stephanie is a genius and a lovely, incredibly funny person. Buy this book for anyone who knits, they will treasure it.
