Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drunk, Divorced, and Covered in Cat Hair is the irreverent first-person narrative of a contemporary, displaced Southern woman facing life after her husband leaves her to "get his creativity back." With infectious humor and heart, she explains how she gets her groove back after finding herself alone in a rented house with four cats, a mountain of boxes and a slight wine-and-Cheetos problem. Reeling from the sting of divorce, it is the hobby of knitting — and the adventures it leads her to — that keep her from "directing traffic in her nightgown."

Readers will laugh and cry with her as she gets dumped, makes new friends, gains weight (aka The Divorce Diet), travels abroad, and navigates the ins and outs of the modern dating scene. With her sense of humor and broken heart, she chronicles how "picking up sticks" helps her to pick up her life.

Each group of vignettes features original knitting recipes with patterns and color photos, ranging from beginner scarves, her Quick Felted Bracelet Bag, an Easy Roll-Brim Hat and a striped cat tunnel called "The CATerpillar."

Synopsis:

Drunk, Divorced, and Covered in Cat Hair is the irreverent first-person narrative of Crazy Aunt Purl facing life as a contemporary cat-loving, divorced, knitting-obsessed female. Readers will laugh and cry with her as she gets dumped (cast off, in knitting terms), gains weight (casts on), and finds new friends, and her true self, as she learns to knit.

For beginning to off-beat knitters, each group of vignettes showcases an original knitting recipe, from the quirky to the practical:
· A leopard-spotted Kleenex box cover (for a just-dumped crying jag)
· A wide-brimmed roll-down hat (for bad hair days)
· The every-new-knitter-knits-a-scarf scarf
· The Coworker scarf
· Felted drink coasters
· Flower pom-pom (if men don't bring you flowers, knit your own)
· Easy wine bag
· The Knitted Cat Thingmajig (or, the " Caterpiller" ) stripey knitted cat tunnel
· Felted overnight bag (for when you're ready to date again)

Synopsis:

Featuring personal knitting recipes and patterns, this book is the irreverent first-person narrative of a contemporary, displaced Southern woman facing life after her husband leaves her to get his creativity back.
