No Idle Hands documents the importance knitting has had in American life.

Kymberly Dakin has the sweetest voice-- I love listening to her. The story is fine-- it's a history of knitting and is interesting to me because I am a compulsive knitter. Kymberly's voice make it interesting because her voice and inflections are kind. She is probably a trained actress, but I feel like she is speaking to her audience, not just reading.
So far, I don't know of any. I am going to order some more knitting books, Knitting Memories (by Lela Nargi) is next because Kymberly is the speaker.
I am listening to this for the third time. I think the introduction pulls me in, and I love the humor with which Anne writes of the plays that were written during WWII for the knitter's circles. I heard this and my own daughter has a boyfriend deploying to the Iraqi war and I am making her learn to knit because of this. It's a good thing to do while anxious.
Profound interest. I don't mind listening to it a second time because the anecdotes are ones to share in my next knitting circle.
The other day I was writing memoir and I heard Kymberly Dakin's voice in my head. She is truly gifted as a speaker.
If you enjoy knitting, you will enjoy this well told history of the impact knitting has had on our history. There is more here than you would think. Very well read so a subject that could be dry keeps you interested.
Is a great listen, good for a lovely sit with the needles. Anne Macdonald is thorough, and fascinating. Thank you!
