2) Map out your course (Where's the closest yarn store?)
3) Learn the language ("Just one more row...")
4) Find your traveling buddies. (Look for the telltale needle holes in the purse)
5) And cast off with Stephanie Pearl-McPhee on a trip from which you may never return—if you're lucky.
Knitting's Yarn Harlot, with her wry humor and unapologetic, obsessive love for everything about this remarkable place, invites you to join her on a hilarious tour of the land, its people, customs, and culture. She tells all—from unusual geographical features such as the giant stash to common ailments you may be susceptible to, like Yarnesia, Finish-It-Upitis, and the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome. Along the way, you may get lost in Stitches or engrossed by the beauties of Lace, but, whatever happens, it's sure to be the journey of a lifetime.
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, a.k.a. the Yarn Harlot, entertains knitters with her unique humor via her popular blog (www.yarnharlot.com) and her best-selling books, Knitting Rules!, At Knit's End, and Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off.
Knitters have their own rules, their own society, and their own limits. How else can you explain millions and millions of people who all understand that it is reasonable to buy an outrageous amount of yarn because you heard it's discontinued, but completely unreasonable to think that you're going to finish knitting all of it before you die? How else do we all know the password, pantheons of us, in every corner of the globe, all quietly muttering 'just one more row.'
