Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off
- The Yarn Harlot's Guide to the Land of Knitting
- By: Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
- Narrated by: Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
- Length: 4 hrs and 24 mins
Using a travel guide format, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee acts as tour guide extraordinaire, describing and critiquing every aspect of this territory she knows so well: its people (young and old, male and female), familiar phrases ("purl this, darn that"), strange beliefs, currency (skein trading), etiquette, holidays (any sale day at the local yarn shop), and customs. She notes important dates in knitting history and celebrates unsung knitting heroes.
a fun read

My Favorite Book
Most of my book listening is done while knitting. This book slows my knitting only because I am doubled over with laughter. I found the Yarn Harlot's insights into the knitter's psyche to be original and fresh. Her suggestions for knit group etiquette should be typed up for all members of knit groups to memorize. I can' wait for her to record her new book!
