Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Obsessive knitter Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, whose popular knitting blog gets 20,000 hits per day, offers her fellow knitters humorous knitting anecdotes, bits of homespun (no pun intended!) wisdom, helpful tips and little "mantras" to help keep their sanity when realizing an entire sleeve of a sweater has come out wrong and has to be redone. Even nonknitters can appreciate much of her humor-for example, her technique for "darning" socks that have holes in them, "which consists of loudly exclaiming 'DARN!' and a few other choice expletives before dropping them in the garbage." Pearl-McPhee has a warm, engaging voice brimming with humor and often punctuated by a self-deprecating chuckle. This audiobook of her folksy ruminations would make the perfect gift for anyone who loves to knit. The print version of this title won the 2006 Benjamin Franklin Award in humor. A Storey Publishing paperback. (July)
