This totally incurable condition is sure to be helped by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's humorous and heartfelt "meditations!' Her tangled reflections on the knitter's life will keep you in stitches and unravel your tensions for many warm and woolly moments to come.
An obsessed knitter who can't seem to put the needles down, author Stephanie Pearl-McPhee reveals the tangled and sometimes maniacal path of her knitting triumphs and disasters in this sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but all true story. Stephanie talks about the importance and method of stash, how to set reasonable goals for yourself for knitting, what happens when your family doesn't want you to knit, and the many pitfalls that might befall a knitter.
