About the Author

Meet the Author

Stitchy McYarnpants is the nom de plume of mild-mannered computer programmer Debbie Brisso, who is making a huge splash on the Web with her “confessions of a husband-neglecting, cat-shooing, yarn-hoarding knitaholic” blog and Web site (www.museumofkitschystitches.com). She lives in Boston and often needs to knit for warmth.

I dont even knit and this is funny. I picked this up becaue of the cover and now I am hooked. It reminds me of the gallery of regrettable foods.
