Free-Range Knitter: The Yarn Harlot Writes Again Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone's favorite knitter and blogger Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (a.k.a. the Yarn Harlot) is back again with more knitting enjoyment to reveal the purest elements of her woolly craft — obsession, frustration, reflection, and fun in the paperback edition of Free-Range Knitter: The Yarn Harlot Writes Again.

This paperback edition of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's popular Free-Range Knitter: The Yarn Harlot Writes Again reminds us of the joy we felt upon first encountering her hilarious and poignant collection of essays surrounding her favorite topics: knitting, knitters, and what happens when you get those two things anywhere near ordinary people.

For the 60 million knitters in America, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (a.k.a. the Yarn Harlot) shares stories of knitting horrors and triumphs, knitting successes and defeats, but, mostly, stories about the human condition that ring true for everyone--especially if you happen to have a rather large amount of yarn in your house. 

Funny, unique, and gleeful in her obsession, Pearl-McPhee speaks to knitters of all skill levels in this delightful celebration of craft and creativity.

Synopsis:

Pearl-McPhee returns to pen another hilarious and poignant collection of essays surrounding her favorite topics: knitting, knitters, and what happens when those two things get anywhere near ordinary people.

Synopsis:

This paperback edition of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's New York Times best-selling Free-Range Knitter: The Yarn Harlot Writes Again reminds readers of the joy they felt upon first encountering her hilarious and poignant collection of essays.

Synopsis:

. . . a sort of David Sedaris-like take on knitting--laugh-out-loud funny most of the time and poignantly reflective when it's not cracking you up. --Library Journal on Yarn Harlot

About the Author

 Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is the author of several books and three collections of essays: Yarn Harlot, Free-Range Knitter, and All Wound Up.

She's a mother of three, a wife of one, can drive a standard, and has owned two cats in a row that don't care much for her.
