    Story
    "I love this book!"
    Would you listen to The Secret Language of Knitters again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to "The Secret Language of Knitters" again! This is not only informative, but also, very entertaining!! It is written and read in such a light-hearted manner, I could not help but "feel good" just by listening to it!! The author has a way of not only writing, but narrating her work as though she were right there next to you, telling you her story personally!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret Language of Knitters?

    One of the "subjects" I liked was how she likened knitting to an addiction!! She really says it like it is, and I am definitely guilty!!! The author pokes fun at THIS addiction and of course lets us know this one is really okay, and we are definitly not alone in it!!!


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Secret Language of Knitters?

    To remember to keep my knitting excapades light-hearted and to remember to laugh at my own "crazys", wether I'm "frogging, sex-ing, or kip-ing"!


    Any additional comments?

    Great work! I think the author is a wonderful writer and story-teller, and hope she'll bring us more knitting reads in the future!
