Synopses & Reviews
This lighthearted, philosophical look at the current knitting craze views its popularity as third-wave feminism in action. Part how-to, part social criticism, it addresses such issues as the appropriateness of knitting in public, sharing needles, and the use of natural versus synthetic yarns. A dozen knitting patterns for hot water bottle covers, scarves, baby clothes, and doggie sweaters are also included.
Knitting as the new feminism? You bet. This is a lighthearted, philosophical look at why knitting is back in fashion and the fabulous women (and men) embracing the lost art of their grandmas. Answering questions such as, Is it okay to share needles?, Sharon Aris shows how to knit yourself happy.
