With prose that knits together personal reflection, memoir, and history of knitting, Nora Murphy lightly touches on many different ideas. Unfortunately, I finished the book with that dissatisfied feeling you get when you snack through a meal. At times my curiosity was piqued only to be left hanging as the text moved onto another idea. I think this is a poem hidden in too many words.

For those who want more information about textile traditions that are romanticized in the text, start with the bibliography of this book.
