Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris by Paul Gallico

I thoroughly enjoyed it as a sweet, quick summer read. Not challenging literature, but a sweet tale and a great picture of Paris at a specific moment in time.

“All knitterly creation stems from one simple element: yarn. It is the baker’s flour, the jeweler’s gold, the gardener’s soil. Yarn is creation, consolation, and chaos all spun together into one perfect ball.”
Clara Parkes

“You've heard about the knitter's handshake? Two hands go in for the grab-and-shake, but at the last minute, they veer to the closest sleeve or band and grab it instead while we ask, "Did you knit this?”
Clara Parkes, The Yarn Whisperer: My Unexpected Life in Knitting

“I'm cashmere, for God's sake," it grumbles. "I deserve better than Rubbermaid.”
Clara Parkes, The Yarn Whisperer: My Unexpected Life in Knitting
