Item Description...
The Yarn Harlot strikes again! Best-selling knitting author and humorist Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is back with an irresistible collection of witty observations on how knitting and life wisdom are spun together.

In Things I Learned From Knitting (Whether I Wanted To or Not), Pearl Mc-Phee examines age-old aphorisms in light of knitting. From "Hope Springs Eternal" to "A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed" and "Birds Of A Feather Flock Together," Pearl-McPhee casts a fresh, off-beat light on these sayings. Presented in quick, punchy takes, each entry in this book calls out to be read aloud and shared with anyone who enjoys playing with yarn and needles.

Pearl-McPhee's observations are hilarious; the situations she describes strike a familiar, "not you, too?" feeling in the heart of anyone who knits. Interspersed throughout the book are her notes on the things that "Knitting is still trying to teach me. . ." That no matter how well you knit, looking at your work too closely isn't helpful. It's like kissing with your eyes open. Nobody looks good that close up.

Laugh out loud good!  Oct 20, 2008
This book is laugh out loud fun! I am sure the people that ride my daily bus have decided that I have now totally flipped my gourd. I also sat with little post-it notes marking the pages that I wanted to go back to.

Seriously, if you are a knitter, you will indeed understand what she is talking about.

If you are not a knitter but love a knitter, but the book for them. The knitter in your life will thank you and you will enjoy the chortles.

Perfect treadmill reading   Oct 9, 2008
I'm on a knitting kick but have to do other things occasionally, such as getting on the treadmill. This little book was my answer to not being able to knit on the treadmill. I hadn't expected to actually enjoy it, but I did because from the "do over" to the yarn stash, it's all me. I thought it was entertaining and a bit profound at times.

I think it would also appeal to those hooked on crochet, and perhaps other thread crafts.

This was my first book by this author so if she repeated herself (as I read in one review), I was unaware of it.
Knitting Humor  Sep 13, 2008
Knitters everywhere will greatly enjoy this book. All knitters will be able to realte to and see some of themselves in these comical stories. A good read!
learned not to buy any more Yarn Harlot books  Jul 9, 2008
I bought this book hoping to find more of the same humor that was in her first two books. The third book (The Yarn Harlot Casts Off) was a disappointment to me, but I'd hoped it was a fluke. Sadly, I think book#4 is more of the same trend. If you've never read her books, it would probably be amusing, but there wasn't much original in this one. I guess there is only so much you can write about the follies of knitting, and two books is about that much! wish I'd not bought it - will be donating to our library.
Not as good as the others  Jul 6, 2008
I've read all the Yarn Harlot's other books, faithfully read her blog, and heard her speak live. I enjoy her style and funny anecdotes. This book was disappointing. It didn't have any substance to it, and I found it dull. Her next book sounds like it'll be much better. I wish I'd skipped buying this one and waited for the next one to come out.
