Overview

The category–killing knitting guide from one of the major influences of the back–to–knit movement and the owner of La Knitterie Parisienne, a Hollywood hotspot (her in–store knitting circle has included Debra Messing, Sofia Coppola, Sarah Jessica Parker and Russell Crowe).

Mother of Purl, written in Edith's warm, humorous but no–nonsense voice, allows readers to feel as though she is there knitting alongside them. The book combines clear instructions that Edith has honed over 30 years of teaching with the refined Parisienne styling and sophistication that has drawn the elite of Hollywood and fashion stylists to rely on her. Packed with hundreds of Edith's Secret Tips, dozens of longer–format 'Tips from the Top' and multiple celebrity anecdotes, Mother of Purl will be to knitters what The Joy of Cooking is to chefs. This is an invaluable reference, warm and witty, packed with practical techniques, inspiring projects and the kind of insight that only comes from 30 years of teaching experience.

    Mother of Purl: Friends, Fun, and Fabulous Designs at Hollywood's Knitting Circle

    I never buy knitting books, but for some reason I picked this one up and I am so glad I did. I've never seen a knitting book with so much useful information. Edith's knit tips are fabulous. I wish I lived in LA, so I can visit her shop. She really knows her stuff and I was so impressed. The patterns were so lovely too. I need a new project, and my next one will definitely be from this book. Edith was right on with this book. Two words of advice: Buy it!

    I loved the book. The patterns are fantastic and easy to follow. They are hip and trendy and something you would see in a fashion magazine. I want to knit them all! Edith's knit tips are so useful and the stories fun. Finally, a knitting book worth owning.

    Not your typical knitting book! I actually found this book to be useful and a good read. This book is worth buying for the knitting tips alone, but it doesn't hurt that the patterns are also fantastic. This book has my vote!
