really liked it
bookshelves: knitting

(So far, very funny but informative book. Author is trying to knit a pattern by a knitting designer who is known for vigorously defending her intellectual property rights, so there is information about that thorny issue.)
Martini has ably managed to encompass knitting, copywrite law, childrearing, yoga, knitting blogs, and friendship with humor and skill.
If you are a knitter you will probablly read this book and nod your head in places because you know the Sock Knitting Gods are not always on your side. If you are not a knitter you probably won't touch this book with a ten inch knitting needle, but you'll be missing a good read. This is not so much about the finished sweater as it is about the process of knitting...the way knitting makes your life different. Not necessarially better, but different.
And I want a bumper sticker that says " I knit so I don't kill people".
