Things I Learned from Knitting: ...Whether I Wanted to or Not
Hardcover - English

Bestselling knitting author and humorist Pearl-McPhee is back with an irresistible collection of witty observations on how knitting and life wisdom are spun together. ...With a knitter's perspective, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee describes the astonishing wisdom and hard-to-swallow truths that are embedded in everyday clich s. 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."..."Beginning is easy, continuing is hard" takes on special meaning for a knitter faced with five projects already on needles, yet struck by the irresistible urge to start something brand new. Share Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's amazement at the resounding, and even astonishing, truths found in everyday cliches and adages. Babies grow is a hard-learned lesson if you are a knitter who's stayed up nights making a tiny sweater for a special newborn, only to discover that a baby's ability to grow far exceeds your ability to knit. Knowing that you gotta roll with the punches can push an airborne knitter to the extreme of casting on with a couple of coffee stir sticks. After all, as every knitter knows for sure, idle hands are the devil's workshop.

About Author

Pearl-McPhee, Stephanie
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is the author of several books and three collections of essays: "Yarn Harlot", "Free-Range Knitter", and "All Wound Up". (Two of those are "New York Times" best sellers, which both Stephanie and her mum are really proud of.) She maintains a popular virtual home at www.yarnharlot.ca, and a less organized (and popular) actual home in Toronto, Canada. She's a mother of three, a wife of one, can drive a standard, and has owned two cats in a row that don't care much for her.
