bookshelves: 2008, knitting
Recommended for: a gift for a new knitter, along with needles and yarn
Read in September, 2008

I was expecting something more like "The Secret Life of a Knitter", a book of longer essays with some personal experiences and knitting insights. I aparently mixed up this book with "Free Range Knitter" that's coming out soon. Unlike those two books, this is not a book for reading, it's essentially a "gift book" - full of short, pithy sayings and funny little blurbs. Like those little "You're the Best Sister" books they sell at Hallmark.

If I were putting together a little learn-to-knit gift for a friend (needles, pretty yarn, etc) I wouldn't hesitate to tuck this book in the basket. But I wouldn't buy it for myself, or give it as a gift to an experienced knitter (I really don't think that's what it's for)
