This witty collection represents a pitch-perfect send up of one of the most rapidly growing hobbies today.

Really looking forward to this. Franklin's blog is hilarious, even for non-knitters. (The Panopticon was an early addition to the blogroll on Sid Leavitt's "Readers and Writers Blog.") His writing is witty enough; add in his cartoons, and any computer part within range of a spit take is in danger. It's hard to have to wait until October! I'm not rating it just because I'm a rule-follower like that, but I still know before seeing it that I'll rate it a 5. ;)
