Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's deepest wish is that everyone understand that knitting is at least as fun as baseball and way cooler than the evil looped path of crochet. Every project, from a misshapen hat to the most magnificent sweater, holds a story. Yarn Harlot tells all those stories with humor, insight, and sympathy for the obsessed. Over 50 million people in America knit. The average knitter spends between $500 and $1,700 a year on yarn, patterns, needles, and books. No longer just a fad or a hobby, knitting has advanced to a lifestyle. Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter moves beyond instructions and patterns into the purest elements of knitting: obsession, frustration, reflection, and fun. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's humorous and poignant essays find humor in knitting an enormous afghan that requires a whopping 30 balls of wool, having a husband with size 13 feet who loves to wear hand-knit socks, and earns her "yarn harlot" title with her love of any new yarn--she'll quickly drop an old project for the fresh saucy look of a new interesting yarn. Since the upsurge in knitting began in the early '90s, the number of women under 45 who knit has doubled. Knitting is no longer a hobby for just grandmothers--women and men of all ages are embracing this art. Describing its allure is best left to Stephanie who explains: "It is a well-known fact that knitting is a sparkling form of entertainment, as spiritual as yoga, as relaxing as a massage, and as funny as Erma Bombeck trapped in a PTA meeting."… (mere)

Knitters, if you feel a little bad about your stash or how much time you spend knitting READ THIS. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Some essays will make you laugh out loud and, while you may not cry, others will really inspire some deep, philosophical thought. Only Stephanie could pair the two so wonderfully. I loved this book- though I will warn the non-knitters (or I as I like to call them, Those That Don't Knit...Yet) you just won't get it. But by all means, give it a go- maybe it will inspire you to pick up the needles! ( )

I think I read this years ago but bought a used copy at Powell's a few years ago and it set in my bookshelf since then. I was out of books and so picked it up to re-read it again. Still enjoyable! ( )

So far, I'm loving it. This isn't new - I really enjoy Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's humorous writing. Surely, this is not just because I knit? ( )
