Stories, essays, and memories of knitting come together here to create a charming scrapbook of the age-old handicraft in all its cultural and historical richness. Wry, amusing, moving, and enlightening, these writings range from World War II to our day; they include offerings by Jamaica Kincaid, Melanie Falick, Elizabeth Zimmermann, Meg Swansen, Susan Gordon Lydon, Pam Allen, Lela Nargi, Perri Klass, Teva Durham, and many others. Artwork by Solveig Hisdal, fiber artists Debbie New and Karen Searle, and photographer Chris Hartlove, along with historical photographs, vintage advertising, and pattern booklets, brings the color and textures of these stories to vibrant life.
