Описание

With a knitter’s perspective, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee describes the astonishing wisdom and hard-to-swallow truths that are embedded in everyday clichés. You’ll laugh with Pearl-McPhee as she realizes that “babies grow” after spending nights knitting a now-too-small sweater. “Beginning is easy, continuing is hard” takes on a new meaning to the knitter who has five projects going, but wants to start another. The next time you drop a stitch, take a cue from this insightful collection and remember, “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”

  • (4/5)
    Little essays about the lessons of knitting applied to life. Some are funnier than others, but overall this is a cozy little book that knitters will enjoy.
  • (5/5)
    Quick EZ read with humerous insight on how knitting influnences your life and life's lessons.
  • (5/5)
    Pearl-McPhee has an ability to describe the foibles of knitters and challenges of knitting in a way that is laugh out loud funny. Or at least giggly funny. Recommended for knitters and people who have to cope with knitters.

    No patterns in this one just the Yarn Harlot listing 45 things she's learned from knitting, funny, witty and wise.Something to read and laugh and pick the needles up again.

    I really love Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's self-deprectating, witty approach to writing about knitting. I read her blog often, and have enjoyed many of her books. However, this book did not seem to add very much to her previous writing. It's really more of the same -- anecdotes about knitting lessons learned. While I smiled and laughed as I read this, I had a sense of deja vu. Hadn't I already read this before?If you have not read Stephanie's other books, "Things I Learned from Knitting" is a great point of entry. But if you have others she has writting, this may not add very much to your collection.

    Excellent! Stephanie does it again.
  • (5/5)
    Lots of laugh out loud moments reading this, mostly because I could relate to every word she said. Great book.

    Although I didn't enjoy this book as much as Knitting Rules, it was still a light, enjoyable read. In this volume, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee draws parallels between the knitting and 'real' worlds and takes lessons learned in the former and applies them to the latter. Strangely enough, it does work but I didn't find anything that really stuck in my mind.

    I was planning on waiting to purchase this book until I showed up at whatever venue Stephanie was speaking at (to say thank you to the book store or yarn shop). I was sad about this because if there is anything I’m impatient about waiting for, it’s a book that’s been published that I want to read. So imagine my delight when a good friend I’ve lost touch with sent it to me as a surprise!What to say and how to say it? I see Steph as the older sister I don’t have. She’s smart, she’s witty, she’s vegetarian, we have similar hair and wear glasses; she’s normal! As a bonus she knits (and spins) too! I know that passions about Stephanie’s (and anyone’s) writing are strong. I’m in the pro-Harlot camp. Why? I see myself in much of what she writes and it brings me comfort that I’m not the only one knitting fast and hoping that baby J stays small so I can finish her dragon wrap, who has called mum saying “dinner didn’t come out right, I substituted X, Y, and Z but why didn’t it work?!” (I’ve learned on this one, the new kitchen helps), and well, like Steph I’m lucky. I’m lucky that I can purchase yarn and needles (sometimes insanely expensive needles) and still put dinner on the table (sometimes it is ramen). We have a roof over our heads and health insurance (at the moment). If you enjoy Stephanie’s writing and check your RSS reader constantly to see if she’s posted yet then I know you will enjoy this newest finished object. So yes Stephanie, I do like it.
