Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this warm, wise, and witty memoir, Wendy D. Johnson takes a look at her lifelong obsession with "casting on" as she chronicles her journey from a crudely self-taught, left-handed beginner to one of the world's most prolific knitters — not to mention premier knitting bloggers.

From the virtues of learning how to knit the perfect sock, to the compulsive need to stash exquisite skeins of yarn in every crevice of one's home, this is the perfect book for every knitter. Wendy also offers tips for avoiding errors, thoughts on knitting gifts for others, and more than twenty original patterns for knitters of every level of expertise: from the ridiculous and irreverent (a cell phone cozy) to the absolutely sublime (your very own luxurious Nordic style pullover).

Synopsis:

In this warm, wise, and witty memoir of the knitting life, the author chronicles how she transformed from a crudely self-taught, left-handed beginner, to one of the world's most prolific knitters.

Laugh-out-loud funny. Full of good advice sparked with a great deal of wit, and sprinkled with useful patterns. Reminiscent in some ways of the writing of Elizabeth Zimmermann.

Carol Green, December 30, 2006 (view all comments by Carol Green)
While not quite as humorous as the Yarn Harlot, Wendy Knits is an enjoyable book. Wendy not only tells her story of learning to knit and her adventures along the way, but also provides several good information and knitting instruction. All in all, it's a better "knitting" book than the Yarn Harlot. As an added bonus, Wendy includes several interesting patterns.

If you're looking for an enjoyable read about knitting and some good basic patterns that can be adapted, this is the book for you.
