Fun stories about a love for knittingSamantha
It was an enjoyable read, a book I'd take with me while I ate my meals in solitude in Crossroads. There were several 9/11 stories which I skimmed over, since I don't care for 9/11 much. Recommended!Knitology
Featuring another rich array of contributors, KnitLit Too includes folksinger Christine Lavin and writers Perri Klass, Lesléa Newman, and Suzanne Strempek Shea. Featured as well are stories by a third-grader who picks up the needles for the first time, a mother waiting to wrap her soon-to-be-adopted child in the blanket she made for him, a sister upstaged by her Merchant Marine brother who happens to be a natural knitter, a man who is forced to admit to the new woman in his life that, yes, he knows how to knit, and a young girl living with her mother in a battered women’s shelter who is brought back from the brink when she learns to knit. Rounding out these heartwarming true tales are original poetry, meditations, fiction, and even a mystery, all about knitting.Ann
The Stephanie Pearl McPhee story that kicks off this collection about trying to knit while ice skating was absolutely hilarious, but the rest of this book fell flat for me. I appreciate the idea of putting together personal memories about knitting and how it affected the authors' lives...but for the most part they didn't seem to have a point, and even those that were genuinely touching got lost among the cloying overwrought ones.Wyn
Funny, touching, and enlightening. People knit (or not) for a lot of reasons - relaxation, creativity, or tradition. This book explores a lot of the feelings people have about the process.Juliet
This book made me want to knit constantly.Brandie
Cute. Light-hearted read. A collection of stories is something I don't usually read, but it was quite good, and about knitting - bonus! LOL!Sue K
Nice, light stories that I read while enjoying my evening bathJosie
Another great mesh of heartwarming stories from other knitters.
