Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The category-killing knitting guide from one of the major influences of the back-to-knit movement and the owner of La Knitterie Parisienne, a Hollywood hotspot (her in-store knitting circle has included Debra Messing, Sofia Coppola, Sarah Jessica Parker and Russell Crowe).

Mother of Purl, written in Edith's warm, humorous but no-nonsense voice, allows readers to feel as though she is there knitting alongside them. The book combines clear instructions that Edith has honed over 30 years of teaching with the refined Parisienne styling and sophistication that has drawn the elite of Hollywood and fashion stylists to rely on her. Packed with hundreds of Edith's Secret Tips, dozens of longer-format 'Tips from the Top' and multiple celebrity anecdotes, Mother of Purl will be to knitters what The Joy of Cooking is to chefs. This is an invaluable reference, warm and witty, packed with practical techniques, inspiring projects and the kind of insight that only comes from 30 years of teaching experience.

Synopsis:

This resource combines clear instructions the author has honed from more than 30 years of teaching with the refined Parisienne styling and sophistication that has drawn the elite of Hollywood and fashion stylists to rely on her.
