Knitlit the Third: We Spin More Yarns

Knitlit the Third: We Spin More Yarns Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether youre a veteran knitter or brand-new to the needles, KnitLit creators Linda Roghaar and Molly Wolf welcome you into their ever-growing circle with KnitLit the Third, an all-new collection of stories about the ups, downs, ins, and outs of knitting.

With more than seventy contributors casting on here, youll meet enthusiastsokay, knit-aholicswho know the frustration of having ones needles confiscated at the airport. Youll sympathize with owners of lush “problem skeins” that are impossible to knit. Youll encounter the mysteries of never-matching baby booties–and the adventures of one suspicious knitter whos convinced that a fellow knitting blogger is really a celebrity author in disguise. For those who approach this art from a more spiritual perspective, there are the stories that remind us of the power of a simple stitch. From the mother whose project provides comfort during her troubled pregnancy to a woman compelled to make dozens of blankets for Afghan refugees, each knitted and purled row offers the potential to heal ourselves.

And so we spin on. KnitLit the Third is the latest in a pattern of poignant, hilarious, bittersweet, and inspiring yarnscreated by and for lovers of the craft.
