One thing that can generally be said about the knitting community, we are a group that can laugh at itself. This book is a really light, quick read that brushes on the high and low points of knitting life, and serves less as an instruction manual on knitting technique and more as a primer on knitting culture. Good for a few chuckles, it helps beginning knitters to garner a better understanding of their own trials in yarncraft while reminding experienced knitters whence their craft has come.
