Synopsis

Knitting Yarns explores what is so magical about knitting and how it can inspire joy and help us get through life-changing events. Knitting occupies an important a place in the hearts of a number of writers. Ann Hood has collected twenty-seven original essays by, among others, Anita Shreve, Elizabeth Berg, Ann Patchett and Barbara Kingsolver. They tell stories about how knitting healed, challenged or helped them to grow. Andre Dubus III tells how knitting a Christmas present for his blind aunt helped him knit an understanding with his girlfriend. Kaylie Jones finds the woman who cared for her as a child by using knitting to heal old wounds. Sue Grafton writes about her passion for knitting. With five original patterns created by Helen Bingham, Knitting Yarns will delight knitting enthusiasts and lovers of literature alike.
