Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She's back. And crazier than ever. In her debut narrative, Drunk, Divorced, and Covered in Cat Hair, blogger extraordinaire Laurie Perry gave people a hilarious yet heartfelt glimpse into her misadventures as a recent divorcée with three cats, a slight wine and Cheetos problem, and scores of unfinished'"and'"uneven knitting projects. Now, in her second installment, she's done drunk-dialing her ex, and has moved on to make the best out of the "extra odd bits"'"both in her knitting projects and in her life, from getting her house in order, or "procrasti-cleaning,"to curbing expenses, from "green guilt"and pre-date nausea, to winning the battle of the bulge (think Spanx!).  Whether readers are Laurie Perry fans, or die-hard or beginning knitters, they'll find more adventures, eclectic projects, and, of course, more cocktails (and cats) on Laurie's quest to, like most women, find enlightenment, purpose, and balance in a topsy-turvy world. The following knitting recipes are included, with matching wine accompaniments:
  • Knitted Holiday Hats: Pumpkin Cap, Santa Hat, Turkey Hat 
  • Retro Crocheted Toilet Paper and Toilet Lid Cozy
  • Personal Massager Cozy
  • Retro Faux-Macrame Plant Hanger
  • Knitted Date-Night Purse
  • Knitted Flower
  • Knitted Bracelets (or Anklet)

Chapter titles include:

  • On the Brink of Disaster (Or How I Became My Own Art Project)
  • On Curbing My Instinct to Adopt Homeless Pets, Men, and Clutter
  • On Procrasti-cleaning, of Which I Am the World's Leading Authority
  • On Being Environmentally Friendly: If I Go Green Can I Still Shave My Legs?
  • On Etiquette: I Think I Propositioned My Doctor, Help.
  • On Paralyzing Nausea: My Date with Jimmy Carter
  • On Turning Into My Mother, Her Mother, and Probably Your Mother
  • On The Treadmill, Out of My Mind

Synopsis:

The first horseman of the apocalypse is undoubtedly the Internet personal ad. I am not sure why every single one of them is some variation of:

Balding, Paunchy, Twice-Divorced, Unemployed Male Seeks Independently Wealthy Supermodel for No-Strings-Attached fun. Nonsmokers only.

She's Back, and edgier than ever. In her debut narrative, Drunk, Divorced, & Covered in Cat Hair, blogger extraordinaire Laurie Perry, aka 'Crazy Aunt Purl,' gave women everywhere a hilarious yet heartfelt glimpse into her misadventures as a recent divorcee with a herd of cats, a slight wine and Cheetos problem, and scores of unfinished and uneven knitting projects.

Now, in her second installment, she's no longer drunk-dialing her ex. She is well on her way to divorce recovery and has embraced a new-found philosophy: To make the best out of the 'extra odd bits'--both in knitting and in life. Discovering how she accomplishes this will make you laugh and cry as she navigates new territory, from dating in a weird, wired world to vacationing solo for the first time. On the cusp of the big four-O, she ventures to the most exotic, foreign locations--the gym, a therapist's office, a self-tanning emporium-- on a search for enlightenment and happiness in-- where else?--downtown Los Angeles.

• Island Beach Bag

• Lonely Hearts Personal Massager Cozy

• Wineglass Flip-Flop Coaster

• Quick Knit Date-Night Bag

•Brain Freeze Ice Cream Cozy

• Super-Easy Beret . . . and more!

Over a dozen knitting recipes included with photos!
