Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting

ISBN 0393239497


"Poignant, funny, and moving." Bookreporter


When I became a knitter, I quickly noticed how many other writers were knitters. Or wannabe knitters. Or frustrated knitters. Their stories, told to me at writing workshops, cocktail parties, conferences or over dinner, made me laugh and cry in equal measure. The idea to edit an anthology of writers writing about knitting led to this dizzying array of contributors. Barbara Kingsolver, Ann Patchett, Andre Dubus lll, Anita Shreve, Elizabeth Berg...the list is mindblowing, the essays gorgeous, the anthology a great read and a great gift for knitters and non-knitters alike.

Ssshhhh...stay tuned for Knitting Purls, even more of your favorite writers writing about knitting. Coming in 2015!
