really liked it
Read in June, 2008

I didn't realize that this is half humor and half basic patterns until I started reading. I knit some, it's more of a part-time hobby for me, but I read the Yarn Harlot blog regularly and enjoy her brand of humor. I didn't really need the basic patterns, as I had already figured that out from other books and the internet. I ended up skipping a lot of the pattern information and just reading the stories and lists in the book. Still, it would be a nice resource to have if you're ever wondering about how many stitches to cast of for a hat, sock, scarf, etc. She makes knitting much more approachable and frequently says that if knitting has been child labor for the last 700 years, anyone that can read can probably knit. She's got a point.
