Overview

With a knitter’s perspective, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee describes the astonishing wisdom and hard-to-swallow truths that are embedded in everyday clichés. You’ll laugh with Pearl-McPhee as she realizes that “babies grow” after spending nights knitting a now-too-small sweater. “Beginning is easy, continuing is hard” takes on a new meaning to the knitter who has five projects going, but wants to start another. The next time you drop a stitch, take a cue from this insightful collection and remember, “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” 

Editorial Reviews

Atlanta Journal Constitution
“Pearl-McPhee had the crowd in – ahem – stitches.”

A front-page feature in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution covering Stephanie’s event stated, “ “It’s like our version of Woodstock,” Atlanta business owner Karen Jacobson observed wryly of the event.” Another quote reads, “ “It’s like when I saw the Beatles in 1964. Better, actually. This time I didn’t have to hitchhike to get there.”
