I set out ready to not like this book. I figured it was just someone else jumping on the Julie & Julia bandwagon looking to make an easy buck. I mean, why haven't I come up with one of those "here's what terribly average, if a little silly and mildly interesting, thing I did with a year of my life" ideas? How hard can that be? But when I read about her search as a mom for something to define her, I knew I had to give this one an honest chance. We were kindred spirits already.
In all honesty, the book may not hold much appeal for non-knitters, but I was entertained by her quest to create the Mary Tudor sweater and the search to define what makes a sweater the knitter's vs. the designer's. The author's voice is wry and funny. I felt like I was discussing this project over drinks with a good friend.
