Kurzbeschreibung

18. Oktober 2011
“ . . . a sort of David Sedaris-like take on knitting—laugh-out-loud funny most of the time and poignantly reflective when it’s not cracking you up.†–Library Journal on Yarn Harlo

Inside All Wound Up, New York Times best-selling author and self-proclaimed Yarn Harlot Stephanie Pearl-McPhee spins her third yarn on knitting for the 60 million knitters in North America who collectively spend $45 billion a year on knitting-related merchandise.

In her trademark style, McPhee talks about knitting, parenting, friendship, and--gasp!--even crocheting in essays that are at times touching, often hilarious, and always entertaining. Fans of her popular blog at www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/ will adore this all-new collection of tales of the woolen and silky skein, which follow the Yarn Harlot's previous exploits chronicled inside Yarn Harlot and Free-Range Knitter.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is the author of several books and three collections of essays: Yarn HarlotFree-Range Knitter, and All Wound Up. (Two of those are New York Times best sellers, which both Stephanie and her mum are really proud of.) She maintains a popular virtual home at www.yarnharlot.ca, and a less organized (and popular) actual home in Toronto, Canada. She’s a mother of three, a wife of one, can drive a standard, and has owned two cats in a row that don’t care much for her.

4.0 von 5 Sternen All Wound Up.... in reality 31. Oktober 2011
Von Terre Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
It's been a while since I've read Stephanie Pearl-McPhee or her blog, so I had forgotten how jealous I am of her knitting skills. Having tucked my bitterness away, I proceeded on with her latest.

Having said that, I have to say I enjoyed this collection much more than her last effort because it was, gasp, a bit "darker" - and it's not as if she has gone serial yarn killer or anything - than her other works. In this volume her musings are more about the darker side of her personality: she is "All Wound Up," so to speak, and it is refreshing to know that sweet smiling woman is just as bitter as I am about several things. Beloved and faithful appliances choking out their last when the household budget can ill-afford it, idiots making inane remarks regarding her knitting in public, and heart-crushing sadness. She also touches on the less finer points of dealing with daughters, adolescent dating, and determining whether one's penchant for fiber qualifies as an addiction. The Yarn Harlot is nothing if not humorous, and this is humor to which I can relate.

I can forecast that some fans may complain that there are more topics than just the love of knitting. Yet this is just what I feel makes this collection stronger than earlier efforts. No matter what the topic, she knits it all together with love, laughter and yarn.

Well done.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Mixed Bag of Yarns! 28. Oktober 2011
Von AutumnHarvest - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I love the Yarn Harlot, and I have all of her books, including this one, which I couldn't wait to receive. Many of the chapters in here are funny, well written, and pure Stephanie. However, I was dissapointed in some of the chapters. I thought they were mundane, not up to her usual standards, not much about yarn or knitting, and just not funny. I am sure it isn't easy to crank out book after book, but, perhaps some better editing would have brought this one up to her usual hilarious best. However, that won 't stop me from waiting for her next book--although I might scan it a bit more before I plunk down my cash!

3.0 von 5 Sternen haven't i read this before? 24. Oktober 2011
Von Lori - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
i have loved all of the previous books by the yarn harlot. i read her blog daily. however, i have just started this book, and already i have read two stories that i previously read on the blog. if you already read about the questions people ask knitters, or the sad story of the demise of sir washie, don't bother with these chapters in the book. i am disappointed by this, and wondering how much more of the book is material that i have already seen. if i am purchasing a new book, i want to see all new material. i will consider this before i purchase her next book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen I wanted to like it...but its old material. 19. November 2011
Von Megan Ellinger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I really love Yarn Harlot's blog and I've been a loyal reader from the beginning. I was hoping this book would be some fresh material but there is a lot of rehashing of stories you've already heard if you read the blog. While I appreciate her sense of humor...I am just not as entertained by the 20th story about the death of a washing machine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hilarious -- As Usual! 19. Oktober 2011
Von knitlit - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Who is the Yarn Harlot? She is the inner voice of knitters everywhere. She writes what all of us are thinking, and she writes what only she could think of (and it's up to you do decide which is which).

In this, her third collection of knitting and non-knitting-related essays (although she does try to use the word "knit" at least once in each, even if it's in the last line), you'll find some old favourites as well as some new ones. Returning are her elaborate love/hate letters to inanimate objects, mostly knitted ones. Missing are her hilarious "Dear Designer" letters; although, there is one that could have disintegrated into one if not, I think, for her personal relationship with Nancy Bush and a healthy realization that this particular train wreck was not, this time, the fault of the designer.

Appearing for the first time is a treatise on... *gasp!* -- crochet. (Yes, I have a new appreciation for it now because of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Who would have thought it possible?)

Also returning are her insights into life, knitting obsession, and the insanity of teenagers. It's clear that the Yarn Harlot spends most of her time thinking deeply and philosophically about all things yarny and yarn related, and we all get to benefit from her musings. As usual, she had me laughing out loud, and, unexpectedly, she about had me in tears a couple times, too.

Because of our dear Yarn Harlot, I could tell my husband that that it's okay that I am a crytoscopophiliac because there's a word for it and because apparently everyone else is one, too -- except, of course, for him. He still thinks I'm crazy, but I think he's about used to it by now.

I also discovered that it's the non-knitters who are insane time-wasters, not me. Yay! (Some may beg to differ, but I prefer to be biased towards my own hobby, thankyouverymuch.) I don't think I really needed her to tell me that, but it was nice to hear it just the same. Actually, I think that's why we all love her so much: she makes us feel good and normal and like productive members of society, like knitting is the only sane thing that is holding the world together at its seams. (They are kitchener-stitch seams, of course.) And really, who doesn't want to feel like that, while having a good laugh over a cup of coffee and a one-point knitting project?

I'd say that the Yarn Harlot has done it again.

And if you've read her books or blog before, you'll know what I mean.

(And if you haven't, and you like yarn or knitting even the teensiest little bit, then for the love of all things woolly, go and read something by her right now. You won't regret it.)
