    "liked the book not the narration"

    Enjoyed the book, particularly the tales, all told from personal perspectives, well researched and shared. Narrator's pace, cadence and inflection was irritating, however, detracting from the experience. Way too lively in spots, stressing words, comments, that did not reflect the text.

    "Enchanting"

    If you're a knitting, you'll love these stories, which bind knitting with personal experiences. The highlight is that Meg Swansen herself reads the portion of the book about her.

    While another reviewer had an issue with the reader (aside from Meg), I actually enjoyed listening to her and found her tone friendly and cadence pleasurable to follow.

    "Perfect for knitters!"

    Heartwarming and fun... and relatable for any knitter out there. The performance was great and so were the stories.
