Description - At Knit's End by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Knitting finally takes its rightful place on the spectrum of personal obsessions, alongside golfing, fishing, and gardening. The tangled life of the knitter is the subject of inspired nuttiness in these 300 tongue-in-cheek meditations from Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. As any knitter can attest to, this is an activity fraught with guilt, frustration, over-optimism, sly deception, and compulsion, along with passionate moments of creative enlightenment. To soothe the unravelled knitter's soul, Pearl-McPhee has selected some of her favourite quotes to cast off from, and then, like the stand-up comic of the knitting world, she rants, raves, and reflects on the universal experiences that are sure to leave avid knitters in stitches. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee has seen it all - from the deadly "second sock" syndrome, to a house so full of yarn she can't find her washing machine, to desperate all-nighters spent feverishly finishing gifts.
