5.0 von 5 Sternen A Knitting Blogger's Review 31. März 2016
Von Jennifer A. Riley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Knitlandia is a beautiful journey that Clara Parkes let's you in on. It brings to mind Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's books, which I adore, and the tone and chapter subjects are very similar (I wonder if they had the same editor).

Each chapter is like an essay that speaks about specific locations/events around the world that are of interest to a knitter (or not). In the chapter on Paris, France, Clara promises to not buy any yarn or even to go into any yarn stores. She succeeds in the first, not the second. The journey is familiar to me, as I have traveled to Myrtle Beach and have learned the joys of marking a road trip with yarn from the destination. I have also begun to venture (as funds allow) to yarn festivals, such as Rhinebeck.

Clara is often a teacher, and most of her chapters are from that perspective, which is heartwarming, not overly critical. I have always hesitated to take classes at festivals, because even though many think my knitting is expert, I have trouble with criticism. This book helped me with that a little, because as a sometime teacher, it shows how similar we are no matter what hat we are wearing.

Knitters really do have a wonderful club that has been cemented with Ravelry.com, craftsy.com, Interweave and VogueKnitting. There is nothing more relaxing than to go to Rhinebeck and be surrounded with people of all religions, heritage, and ages that are all yarn-crafters. The consideration that is generally there, the kindness, the camaraderie is wonderful. Even knitting/crocheting on a bus, a fellow crafter can, and will, acknowledge you with a nod and smile at least, just as if they were standing beside you at a yarn vendor at Rhinebeck and you reach for the same yarn.

The Iceland chapter was hilarious. As someplace I have daydreamed of going to, the chapter started out as an affirmation, to a "I am NEVER going there!", to a daydream again haha. But all in good fun with general information and kindness, so I'm still good with my daydreams of Iceland.

When I was doing video podcasting on youtube.com, I was aware of the birth of the Edinburgh yarn festival and as an American Scot, I hope to return there one day and visit. That chapter is more about the people than the festival, though. Can you imagine having a meal with Stephen West!? Even Clara is awed by who she meets there and that makes her all the more endearing. You never know who you will run into at a festival.

This book is worth the purchase or wait through the local library. It is endearing, funny, relatable and interesting. It has a little bit of something for everyone. If you enjoyed the books by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (all hail the Yarn Harlot!) you will enjoy this book, so check it out, check yourself in and sit back with your favorite beverage when you need to rest your hands from your yarncrafting. You will not be sorry.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Definite Pass 18. August 2016
Von mama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I am a knitter, traveler and an avid reader. Once I start a book I feel the need to finish it, but by a couple chapters in I had to constantly ask myself why I was bothering. I don't know what the draw or insight or point of this book was (I finished). I'm not even sure I would have been interested in any of these stories if Parkes was my friend and she was sharing them over dinner, they were dull and lifeless. I'm sorry, I'm sure she's a great knitter, and an interesting person, but this book was not.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Knitting Travels 28. Januar 2017
Von NMJacoby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I could read Clara Parker's observations on knitting and the world around her for days. I especially liked the sections describing places I know; she captured them exactly. I'm a new knitter, but a very long time quilter and many of the descriptions and feelings she has about knitting apply to other fiber arts as well. It's in the materials, colors, textures and process we find our delight.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A world full of fiber 22. April 2016
Von Jana Cunningham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a fiber junkie who loves to go to shows and retreats. Clara Parkes has nailed the atmosphere, excitement and just plain fun. Her writing style is sophisticated--not gushy or cute as these things tend to be. Best of all she's taken me to events that I'll probably never get a chance to see. If you wonder why your knitting, spinning and weaving friends wax poetic over yarn, this book will help clear up the mystery.
5.0 von 5 Sternen It will NOT disappoint!!! 26. April 2017
Von Stefanie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Seldom does an author prompt me to laugh-out-loud while reading their book, but Clara Parkes' writing has this effect on me. This has been a delightful read...one that has sent me Googling more times than not a geographical location, a festival, a yarn store...I even calculated the distance from my sister's house to one of the festivals she writes about....future trip planning for sure!!! Filled with short but riveting vignettes of her yarn travels, it is sure to satisfy the reader looking for something different. Highly recommend this book
