|Best-selling knitting author and humorist
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is back with an irresistible collection of witty
observations on how knitting and life wisdom are spun together.
I Learned From Knitting (Whether I Wanted To or Not),
Pearl Mc-Phee examines age-old aphorisms in light of knitting. From
"Hope Springs Eternal" to "A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed" and
"Birds Of A Feather Flock Together," Pearl-McPhee casts a fresh,
off-beat light on these sayings. Presented in quick, punchy takes, each
entry in this book calls out to be read aloud and shared with anyone
who enjoys playing with yarn and needles.
Pearl-McPhee's observations are hilarious; the situations she describes
strike a familiar, "not you, too?" feeling in the heart of anyone who
knits. Interspersed throughout the book are her notes on the things
that "Knitting is still trying to teach me. . ." That no matter how
well you knit, looking at your work too closely isn't helpful. It's
like kissing with your eyes open. Nobody looks good that close up.
