The Yarn Harlot strikes again! I loved this book, it was a real page turner. This book isn't so much about knitting but is a collection of stories which show how knitting affects knitters and those around them. I think one of my favourite stories is of a small child who was sitting knitting and looking angelic. Of course this was only a reprieve because normally this child would be looking for something creative to do, like painting a mural on the walls or playing dress up with the dog. I loved seeing how knitting helped her while baby sitting this child and had helped her raise her own daughter who had similar traits as a child. It is the personal stories which make this book resonate with me. Makes me glad that I am a knitter so that I was interested enough to start reading her blog, and later her books.
