I picked up this sweet little book at the Knitters Review retreat last fall, read a tiny bit of it, and then lost it in one of the piles of unread books in my house. I picked it up again, and found it to be great subway reading. As is generally the case, some of the essays shine out from the rest. I particularly liked Lela's essay, Clara's essay, and the piece called "Virginia" by non-knitter Cedric Chatterly. As is also generally the case, a few of the essays fell a bit flat for me. I can accept that, though--I'm just so happy to see outlets for writing about knitting and its role in our culture.
