Find the Funny in Knitting with the Yarn Harlot

By January 16, 2013

Follow me on:

It seems like all the books and authors I'm recommending this week are reminding us that knitting is fun and, yes, sometimes, funny. I guess that's the message I need to hear right now.

all wound upAll Wound Up by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Andrews McMeel Publishing.

I got a little burned out on the craft after my book was finished (let's be honest, a little before my book was finished) and I'm still not quite up to the knitting speed or enthusiasm that I had before.

Maybe I need to pick up a Yarn Harlot book. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is a Canadian knitting humor writer (it might be safe to say she's the Canadian knitting humor writer) and author of seven books full of essays about knitting, including:

I have, apparently never reviewed The Yarn Harlot, At Knit's End or Knitting Rules!, but know that I have read them all and enjoyed them all. I usually devour one of her books in a weekend and am then sad that I finished it so quickly. I guess it's time to visit some of them again so I can share them with you. (Also, she's coming to Arkansas in May so I'm going to have to brush up on my Harlot before then for sure!)

Do you have a favorite Yarn Harlot book? I'd love to hear about it.
